Big Blue drafted Malik Nabers, wide receiver from LSU with thier 1st pick in the 2024 draft. Nabers was born in Youngsville LA and attended Ovey Comeaux High School in Lafayette before transferring to Southside High School in Youngsville, Louisiana for his senior year.

This is an exciting pick for the New York Giants who were in desperate need of a big time play maker. Nabers had a higher prospect grade and total combine production/athleticism score than previous LSU receivers OBJ and Justin Jefferson. He fell just short of Jamar Chase’s score. 

He fits in to what Daboll wants to do. He is Daboll’s Stefon Diggs with more athleticism & upside. He is a “yac” monster, can handle congested catches, and makes the difficult catch.  The most important piece is he is the type of receiver Dabs covets for his #1 WR. An athlete that creates separation, plays tough,  game changing speed , and is a very good route runner. Nabers can also play all 3 receiver spots. 

2021: Freshman All-SEC Team. Played in 11 games with six starts (28-417-14.9, 4 TDs receiving; 4-23-5.8 rushing).

  • Skills and traits needed to produce effectively on all three levels as a pro
  • Glides and burns past defenders deep or pushes them into retreat for easy stop routes
  • Changes speeds inside the route to tilt defenders off the break point
  • Good hand-fighting and post-up talent to win positioning battles against big corners
  • Frames up defender to finish contested catches underneath
  • Premium leaper with contortionist’s talent for in-air adjustments on jump balls
  • Catches off-frame balls with strong, sudden hands
  • Has grab-and-go acceleration to catch it short and take it long


  • Runs free into big spaces but needs additional route schooling.
  • Inconsistent hip sink to snap routes off at crisp angles.
  • Would benefit from eliminating wasted motion in early phases of the route.
  • Lackadaisical to capture positioning and stack coverage behind him

Giants now have their opportunity for the next great LSU wide receiver who can be an absolute stud and difference maker and possibly…the best WR with production and athleticism in Giants History. Welcome to the New York Football Giants Malik Nabers .
