WR Rueben Randle - New York Giants
|6-3, 210||Born: 5-7-1991||College: LSU||Drafted: Round 2|
Quick fantasy outlook: Randle's rookie line (19 receptions for 298 yards and 3 touchdowns) may not be eye-popping, but underlying those meager achievements are a set of skills that argue for much more in the coming seasons. The Giants believe in drafting the best player available, and GM Jerry Reese saw Randle - the 6'4", 210 lbs. receiver from LSU - as the best value on the draft board in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft. With Hakeem Nick, Victor Cruz, Domenik Hixon and Ramses Barden already in the rotation, Randle wasn't expected to contribute much as a rookie. 2013 could be much different. Hixon and Barden are no longer in New York, and Randle steps into the number three role on an offense that routinely uses 3-WR sets. Factor in Hakeem Nicks propensity for injuries, and Randle could be a starter at some point this year. Randle is still a work in progress, he needs to refine his route-running and be more decisive when battling against physical defensive backs, but he showed enough in limited game action and practices to give the coaches confidence in the 2nd year player.
