Giants WR Malik Nabers Named Potential Draft Bust

Although Malik Nabers has yet to play a snap in the NFL, he’s already made one author’s list as a potential draft bust.


New York Giants first-round draft pick Malik Nabers has yet to play a professional down of football, but that hasn’t stopped one analyst from including him as one of five 2024 draft picks likely to be a bust in the NFC.


In the article appearing on, Nabers is listed as the third of a five-man list of potential NFC draft busts, which also includes offensive lineman Jordan Morgan of the Packers, quarterback Michael Penix Jr. of the Falcons, quarterback Jayden Daniels of Washington, and quarterback J.J. McCarthy of the Vikings.


To justify Nabers’ inclusion on the list, author Kristen Nelson wrote, “There are a few risks with adding Nabers. He lacks size at 6’0″ and 200 pounds, which could be a factor if teams prevent him from utilizing his blazing speed.”


While Nabers is the “smallest” of the top three receivers in this year’s draft class—Rome Odunze of the Bears is 6-3 and 213 pounds, and Marvin Harrison Jr of the Cardinals is listed as 6-3 and 209 pounds—this is a weak argument on which to start one’s argument for Nabers becoming a potential bust.


The Giants’ last No. 1 receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., stood 5-11 and weighed 200 pounds, but that didn’t stop him from recording four 1,000-yard seasons in five years with the Giants.


It also hasn’t stopped Tyreek Hill, all 5-10 and 191 pounds of him, from putting up at least 1,200 receiving yards in each of the last four seasons in a row, including his career-high 1,799 yards last season for Miami
