Rueben Randle, WR, New York Giants

The New York Giants selected LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle with the 63rd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Fantasy analysis: Randle has great size at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and reliable hands. He has deceptive speed to get behind the defense, providing Eli Manning another deep threat.

Randle's skills are limited as a route runner, but that can be taught. He may not see a lot of balls in his first year with Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz earning most of the looks. Nicks is no stranger to injury, and Cruz, thus far, is a one-year producer, so Randle could be thrust into meaningful playing time as a starter in his rookie year.

He is a late-round flier as a roster filler in single-year leagues, and his value over the next few seasons is limited if as long as he is their third receiver.
