The Giants hold the 23rd pick in the first round of 2017 NFL Draft:
With the Giants holding the 23rd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Giants.com looks at the last 23 years of the selection.
With their NFC Wild Card loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the New York Giants are locked into the 23rd pick in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft.
The franchise has never used the 23rd selection in the first round, but the Giants have drafted 23rd overall when there were not as many teams in the league as there are today. They have done so five times, most recently taking offensive lineman Frank Youso in the second round in 1958.
In the entire history of the draft, there have been three Pro Football Hall of Famers taken 23rd overall: tight end Ozzie Newsome (1978, Browns), punter Ray Guy (1973, Raiders) and linebacker Bill George (1951, Bears).
Below is a look at the current draft order as eight teams remain alive in the postseason.
