After winning Super Bowl XLVI the New York Giants entered the 2012 season with high hopes of repeating.As we all know that did not happen and left a bitter taste in some Giants fans mouths.Here are the rookies that Giants management has signed to get their team back in the playoffs in 2013 and possibly another Super Bowl matchup with the New England Patriots.New York Giants 2013 Rookie ClassDraft Picks1st Round: Justin Pugh, Offensive Tackle2nd Round: Johnathan Hankins, Defensive Tackle3rd Round: Damontre Moore, Defensive End4th Round: Ryan Nassib, Quarterback5th Round: Cooper Taylor, Safety7th Round: Eric Herman, Offensive Guard7th Round: Michael Cox, Running Back Undrafted Rookie Free AgentsCharles James, CornerbackJeremy Wright, Running BackAlonzo Tweedy, SafetyCharleus Dieuseui, LinebackerEtienne Sabino, LinebackerMarcus Davis, Wide ReceiverThere were some questionable picks in the 2013 Draft and the Giants had one of the most questionable when they drafted Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib. It's not like he will see any playing time anytime soon. Eli Manning is one of the most consistent and durable quarterbacks in the league.On the positive side of things, the Giants addressed their needs on the defensive side of the ball after ranking 25th against the rush and 28th against the pass in 2012, by drafting defensive end Damontre Moore and safety Cooper Taylor.General manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin also addressed their lackluster running game by drafting UMass running back Michael Cox in the 7th round and signing Jeremy Wright as a rookie free agent. Cox is a big running back standing at 6'3" and 214 pounds, and should have no problem getting on Coughlin's radar as a feature back.
