New York Giants - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

The New York Giants' history dates back to the start of the NFL making them among the senior group of franchises in the NFL. The Giants like the Packers, Bears, Redskins, Steelers, Cardinals, and Rams have a very rich history. The Hall of Fame players who wore a Giants jersey is many. Not all were first-round draft picks but in 1981 they made their best first-round pick ever when Lawrence Taylor was the pick with the second overall choice. “L.T.” as he became well known was one of the game’s greatest linebackers ever and one of the toughest to play the position. But the great players that took the field for the Giants are recognizable for any football fan.
