Continuing our coverage of the past week we look at the 2011 Giants’ draft. A few players on this list have already made a name for themselves and with others, only time will tell if the Giants made a good decision in bringing them to New York. 2011 Giants’ Draft Picks Round Pick Name Position School 1 19 Prince Amukamara Cornerback Nebraska 2 52 Marvin Austin Defensive Tackle North Carolina 3 83 Jerrel Jernigan Wide Receiver Troy 4 117 James Brewer Offensive Tackle Indiana 6 185 Greg Jones Linebacker Michigan State 6 198 Tyler Sash Safety Iowa 7 221 Da’Rel Scott Running Back Maryland   Prince Amukamara Amukamara began his rookie campaign sidelined with a broken foot, but later proved he would be a capable cornerback. The last two seasons, Amukamara has secured his role as the starting right corner and played well. In his first three years, he has three picks and 152 tackles. Marvin Austin Austin came into the NFL with large expectations that he will most likely never live up too. After being placed on the injured reserve for his rookie season, Marvin played sparingly in 2012. Last year, Austin signed with the Miami Dolphins and the Cowboys before being cut near the end of the regular season. Jerrel Jernigan Jernigan spent most of his time on the bench during his first two years in New York. This past season, Jernigan became an important player in the Giant rotation with various injuries among the wide receiving corp. During his 2013 play, Jernigan accumulated 29 receptions for 351 yards. With Hakeem Nicks in Indianapolis, Manning will have to rely on all of his veteran receivers to get the job done. James Brewer Brewer didn’t do much his rookie and sophomore seasons in New York. This past season, with various offensive line injuries Brewer stepped in and didn’t play very well. Brewer started eight games in 2013 and missed many blocks and never helped give Manning anytime to throw. Greg Jones After Jonathan Goff went down with a season-ending injury, Jones became the starting middle linebacker during his rookie season. The Giants waived Jones before the beginning of the 2012 season, and the Jaguars signed him later that season. Jones spent the 2013 offseason with the Titans and just recently signed with the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts. Tyler Sash Tyler Sash was cut by the Giants before the start of the 2013 season and hasn’t played since. During his first two years, Sash played sparingly while also being suspended four games for testing positive for Adderall. Jacquian Williams Jacquian Williams has played well during his first three years in New York. In 2013, Williams started every game and had 57 tackles and two fumble recoveries. He is probably best known for helping the Giants get to Super Bowl XLVI by stripping 49ers punt returner Kyle Williams during the 2012 NFC Championship game. Da’Rel Scott Da’Rel Scott has had an unusual career with the Giants thus far. He has played sparingly throughout his career and was waived and resigned by the Giants twice last season. Scott received the first start of his career last year during the Giants “running back by committee” injury plagued season.
