2012 NFL Draft Results: LSU WR Rueben Randle Selected By The New York Giants With The 63rd Pick

With the 63rd pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the New York Giants selected LSU Tigers wide receiver Rueben Randle. Randle is the 55th rated prospect in the draft and the sixth-rated wide receiver, according to Mocking The Draft's rankings.

Randle started two years at LSU and also saw significant playing time during his freshman year. He posted career highs of 53 receptions, 917 yards, 17.3 yards per reception and eight touchdowns in 2011. Randle's measurables are excellent, but his lack of production relative to other receivers in the class kept him from projecting as a first-round pick before the draft. He did improve in each year, however, and played on a two-quarterback team with two quarterbacks who were not particularly great passers. Randle checks in at 6'4" and 208 pounds, so he fits the ideal body type for a wide receiver.

Many expected Randle to be drafted much higher than this. The Giants get a dynamic playmaker who could thrive with Eli Manning throwing him the ball. New York selected running back David Wilson in the first round.
