2017

2016

Shepard, a second-round pick, landed in an ideal spot, even more so if Victor Cruz isn't healthy. Playing opposite Odell Beckham Jr. ensures an easy transition where Shepard will never be the focus of defenses. Moreover, the Giants don't target Beckham with an inordinate percentage of their attempts. The Giants were also one of the league's more pass-happy teams, though that could change if their defense moves closer to league average in preventing points. At 5-10, 194, Shepard is on the small side, but plays bigger due to his 41-inch vertical and large catch radius for his height. He also has good speed (4.48 40) and is strong and athletic for a small receiver. He has upside, and even if Cruz were to return to his 2013 level, Shepard would immediately be the No. 3 receiver on a team without a good tight end.
