#22 out of 357 overall
#4 at WR
Nicks is a consistent pass catcher who has reliable hands. He lacks elite speed, but is quick and makes plays downfield. He gets a fluid release off the line, is physical through routes and has the ability to make a difficult reception. He offers the quarterback a nice target and comes back to the ball consistently. He's a tough runner after the catch and doesn't go down easily

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||This pick makes sense since the Giants were looking to replace veteran WR Plaxico Burress. While Nicks isn't tall, he's a physical receiver who is good running after the catch. The move was decided after trade talks to acquire WR Braylon Edwards broke down.|
