During an interview with NFL AM on Monday morning, wide receiver Victor Cruz was asked who the Giants number one receiver is.

“I think the No. 1 wideout is Hakeem Nicks,” Cruz said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News. “I mean, he’s been here longer, he understands this offense. He’s our big-play guy, he’s on the outside. So I definitely think he’s our No. 1 receiver, there’s no doubt about it.”

Curz also made it clear that slot receivers like himself are underrated.

“I do think we’ve been undervalued; I think it definitely signifies a change in the game,” Cruz said. ” … I think the numbers are the numbers, and they have to be scaled according to the tops in the league, no matter where you line up on the field.”

I agree with Cruz.  I also believe slot players like himself that are able to stretch the field are very valuable.
