The last ten years haven't been too kind to the Giants. Since the 2014 season, the Giants have a record of 60-102-1 with just one playoff win. Bad coaching hires and lackluster free-agent signings have played a huge role in New York's struggles, but the main thing Big Blue has consistently struggled with over the last decade is drafting.

Coming off a disappointing 2023 campaign, this year's draft is especially important for the team's future. New York has the No. 6 overall pick and can't afford to have another bust this high in the draft. I say this because the Giants are all too familiar with picking players who don't pan out. From first-rounders who didn't last two seasons in New York to top-10 picks who overstayed their welcome, here's a look at the 10 worst draft picks made by the Giants over the last decade.

10. Aaron Robinson

Injuries have tainted Aaron Robinson's young career. The former third-rounder hasn't played in a game since suffering a partially torn ACL and MCL in Week 4 of the 2022 season.

New York will likely draft a cornerback this year and already has guys like Deonte Banks and Cordale Flott. With under 11 games under his belt, there's no guarantee Robinson will have a roster spot next season. The 26-year-old will likely have to win a battle in training camp to remain with the team.

9. Davis Webb

A Texas Tech alumni who beat out freshman Patrick Mahomes for the starting quarterback job, Davis Webb was once viewed as a potential successor to Eli Manning. Webb was selected in the third round of the 2017 draft yet didn't start a game for the Giants until Week 18 of the 2022 season.

In his lone start for New York, Webb threw a touchdown pass to Kenny Golladay. Fun fact: this was the only touchdown pass of Webb's career and the only touchdown catch of Golladay's Giants career.

Aside from being the answer to a random Giants trivia question, Webb did not provide much of anything during his time in New York. Nonetheless, the Giants did reach out to Webb during the 2023 season after Daniel Jones tore his ACL, meaning either Webb's still got it or the Giants were extremely desperate -- I'd lean toward the latter.
