LSU’s Malik Nabers wows at pro day with Giants in attendance

Less than a week after the New York Giants were blown away by Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy at his pro day, LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers showed them what can bring to their sagging offense.

Giants general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll were among the many in attendance.

Nabers displayed speed, dexterity, and overall athletic dominance in his performance at the Tigers’ pro day down in Baton Rouge.

The Giants also got a solid look at quarterback Jayden Daniels and another wideout, Brian Thomas Jr., as they continue to do their due diligence before next month’s draft.

On Tuesday night, Nabers went to dinner with the Giants’ contingent and found himself somewhat impressed by them.

Nabers made no bones about who he thinks the top wideout in this draft class is.

“I’m a dog. You can’t guard me. Anywhere I’m at, (the) defense can’t stop me, no matter if they double me,” he said on NFL Network. “I had enthusiasm because I hear a lot of shade, so it was basically saying stop playing with me I’m really like this.”

Nabers’ performance just might have jettisoned him into the top 5 in Round 1 of the draft. The Giants hold the sixth pick and they are going to be in prime position to grab one of the draft’s top players no matter who gets taken in front of them.

Chicago, Washington, and New England hold the first three picks and are expected to take a quarterback.

The Bears are rumored to favor USC’s Caleb Williams with the top selection. That leaves Daniels, UNC’s Drake Maye, and McCarthy for the Commanders and Patriots to choose from, barring a trade.

Arizona holds the fourth pick and the L.A. Chargers the fifth. They are both open for business but the fact is, one of the four quarterbacks is going to be available there as well as all three top wideouts — Nabers, Washington’s Rome Odunze, and Marvin Harrison Jr. of Ohio State.

Let’s not forget Notre Dame’s Joe Alt, a massive franchise left tackle that teams are going to find difficult to pass up.

Nabers’ big day pushed him up the order now, which means another stud is going to slide down. Schoen will be ready.
