Bright Future for Nicks for Sure
There was a lot of talk about Kenny Britt out of Rutgers around draft time, a nice-sized receiver from Jersey seemingly the perfect fit to replace Plaxico Burress. But the Giants didn't even view Nicks and Britt in the same breath. Britt? Well maybe in the second or third round. Nicks? Top half of the first round. They were thrilled that he was there when they selected and plan to laugh all the way to the bank during the coming seasons.
Nicks' signature play so far came late in the victory in Kansas City when he took a short pass and raced all the way down the sideline, juking a Chiefs defender (Maurice Leggett) out of his shoes right before crossing the goal line. That's just the beginning of it.
Against the Raiders, he was often matched against highly-regarded Nnamdi Asomugha – you know; the guy that was the NFL's highest annually-paid player until Eli Manning came along. Well, Nicks more than held his own against Asomugha, beating him more than once among his four catches.
Like Bill Parcells liked to say, there's no reason to put Nicks in the Hall of Fame just yet. But it's clear to see that he was definitely the right pick for New York – a fact that will surely continue to play out for years and years to come.
