The Giants are trying to replace Mario Manningham, who signed with the 49ers this offseason, and Rueben Randle could be the player to fill the void. He has first-round talent at 6-2 and 210 pounds and the team can afford to bring him along slowly.
Randle has great body control and can track the ball in without breaking his stride, but he needs to get bigger and stronger. Like all wideouts, he needs to focus on route running and concentration. He did play at LSU, where the team was built around the run and had poor quarterback play.
A potential dynasty pick, he will be learning on the job in 2012, but keep an eye on the Giants' No. 3 receiver role. If he wins that job, he could have a few fantasy matchup opportunities. It's a big 'if.' He fits best as a waiver-wire addition, but there are worse late-round flier options.
