The New York Giants will have to rely heavily on their wide receivers in order to be successful in 2013. With two all-pro caliber talents in their stable, there is no doubt this group is the strength of New York's team.
Both Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz have been tremendous in becoming two reliable targets for quarterback Eli Manning. The contrasting styles with which these players approach the game has proven to be an effective combination.
Behind Nicks and Cruz are some intriguing players entering different stages in their careers.
First, there's the young Rueben Randle, poised to break out after coming on strong late in 2012. Two players looking to supplant Randle for those ever-valuable third receiver reps are Louis Murphy and Ramses Barden. Unlike their superior on the depth chart, Murphy and Barden have yet to consistently find a place on the football field.
Based purely on talent and promise, there's a strong case to be made that this wide receiver corps is the best in the NFL. Here's a closer look at how the New York Giants' depth chart stacks up as the 2013 season rapidly approaches.
