The Giants this offseason have been the recipients of both good and bad news. SN’s Vinnie Iyer thinks New York can win the NFC East in 2016, but the Giants’ tiny Super Bowl window has them stuck in do-or-die mode.

That said, Wednesday’s good news actually is great news.

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard, New York’s second-round pick who figures to have an immediate impact in its p

ass-happy scheme, apparently looks a lot like star No. 1 receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo can’t tell the difference.

“I’ll tell you, I was looking at tape the other day and we had a receiver doing some things against us and I told the staff we have to do a better job there against Odell (Beckham, Jr.),” Spagnuolo said, according to SB Nation’s Big Blue View. “And then I looked again and it was not Odell — it was actually Shepard.”

The piece lauds Shepard’s route running ability, which despite below-average size and speed for a receiver allowed him to thrive at Oklahoma, where he produced 3,482 receiving yards and 26 touchdowns.

Iyer last week predicted that Shepard this season will play like a first-round pick rather than the second-rounder he is.
