Pros:

His biggest pro right now is that he is a well developed natural route runner who does a good job selling fakes and running routes at the right depth and space along the sidelines..An asset in the vertical passing game….good body control to catch the ball well  and a good vertical leap, attacks the ball really well in the air …Some upside as a return man..has good concentration and creates yards after the catch…

Cons:

Doesn’t have great size or top end speed….body catches a few too many passes…could struggle against good press corners in the N.F.L….not a lot of upside as a #2 WR and more of a very productive slot WR

Round Projection:

3rd to 4th

Player comparison:

Steve Smith, WR Eagles (Giants). Givens like Smith lacks ideal height, but both have a lot of route running abilities. Givens isn’t afraid to catch the ball in traffic like Smith and could excel as a slot man in the right system like Steve Smith. A serviceable #2 WR, but much better suited as a slot WR
