Total breakdown: Giants draft WR Geremy Davis in sixth round

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A few quick thoughts on the New York Giants' sixth-round draft pick.

The pick: Geremy Davis, WR, Connecticut

My take: This is a big (6-foot-2, 216 pounds) and strong (23 bench-press reps, tied for most his position at the combine) wide receiver who does a decent job of using his size to his advantage in traffic. He's not known for his speed or his separation or his hands, but that's why he's in the sixth round, right? When you take guys in this round, you're looking for people who have some skills and physical traits and can try to work their way up on special teams, and Davis is one of those team-captain types the Giants have been trying to scoop up in these past couple of drafts. Best-case scenario, he develops sometime down the road as a red zone target or maybe converts to tight end. Worst-case scenario, he's scary as heck on coverage units.

Senior letdown: Davis caught 71 passes for 1,085 yards and three touchdowns in a stellar 2013 season as a junior, but his production fell off during a 2014 season that was tough all around for UConn. He started 10 games as a senior and caught 44 passes for 521 yards and three touchdowns.
