It's hard to believe that NFL training camps are nearly here as we near the middle of May. Before training camps officially open, each of the 32 teams will be holding organized team activities (OTAs) this month with the New York Giants' OTAs scheduled to begin on Monday, May 20.

After going 6-11 in 2023, Giants fans are ready to see if this year's roster looks better than the last once OTAs begin. Head coach Brian Daboll & Co. have a lot of work to do if they want to return to the playoffs and the journey to get there could begin by trimming the dead weight in the coming weeks.

With that in mind, here are three Giants who are likely on the chopping block ahead of OTAs.

1. Aaron Robinson, CB

There was a decent amount of hype surrounding Aaron Robinson when the Giants drafted him 71st overall at the 2021 NFL Draft. The former Knights cornerback was coming off a strong run at UCF that saw him named second-team All-AAC twice while shutting down some of the conference's best wideouts.

Unfortunately, Robinson has barely played any games to begin his NFL career, being limited to just 11 due to injury. Offseason core muscle surgery held him to only nine games as a rookie before an appendectomy and knee injury capped him off at two games in 2022. Fans hoping for a clean run of health last year were left disappointed when Robinson missed the entire year with ACL/MCL tears.

When Robinson is healthy, he's a decent cornerback who can disrupt the opposing offense. The issue is that he's barely been healthy enough to showcase his skills, putting his NFL future up in the air if he can't successfully bounce back from his latest issue.

It's up to Robinson to prove himself at the upcoming OTAs. The Giants can't ignore his injury issues for much longer and if he doesn't look healthier than ever, they may not even allow him to prove himself during the regular season.
