WR Nicks goes to Giants

The New York Giants failed to make a trade for Braylon Edwards and instead took North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks with the 29th overall selection.

Hicks, a split end, will compete with Domenik Hixon and Mario Manningham for the right to start in Plaxico Burress’ former spot, but the rookie is likely to begin next season as a reserve.

In fact, he’ll need to have a sparkling training camp and preseason to be worth more than a late-round flier in seasonal formats. Overall, I don’t see Nicks making a significant fantasy impact at the start of his rookie season.

Without a true No. 1 wide receiver on the roster, the value of Eli Manning will take a significant hit.
