Nicks is recovering from a scope on his left knee that was performed in February. Supposedly, Nicks injured the knee back in Week 2 and was never the same as he attempted to play through it. That explains the 53 receptions for 692 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games last season. Couple Nicks’ bad knee with a subpar season by quarterback Eli Manning and you have a player that should provide nice value come draft day.
