Notables: LB Jessie Armstead (1993, 8th Rd), Jeremy Shockey (2002, 1st Rd), S Kenny Phillips (2008, 1st Rd)
Armstead, who never missed a game in his career, became another link in the chain of great Giants linebackers and made five Pro Bowls while leading the Giants to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXV. Shockey set a Giants rookie record with 74 catches in 2002 and still ranks No. 1 in franchise history among tight ends with 371 catches while making four Pro Bowls. Phillips was part of a three-headed monster at safety during the Giants’ 2011 Super Bowl run and recorded four interceptions that season.

Toomer holds franchise records for catches (668), receiving yards (9,497), touchdown catches (54) and 100-yard receiving games (22).
