1. CB Aaron Robinson

The CB2 spot has been an issue for the Giants all season long. It was also a problem the team was dealing with in the offseason. Big Blues GM Joe Schoen didn’t have a lot of wiggle room with the salary cap mess Gettleman left. That is why the Giants didn’t bring back CB James Bradberry, who went and signed with the Eagles. Philly is the only unbeaten team left at 4-0.

Giants second-year pro Aaron Robinson was the front-runner during training camp to be the CB2 who lines up across from Adoree’ Jackson, who became the Giants CB1 this season. Robinson had a shaky start to his rookie year in NY.

The effort and intensity are not a question. He does still need some time to perfect his craft if he wants to stay with the Giants. It doesn’t help that he missed Week 2 and Week 3 with an injury and left the Week 4 game in the second quarter and did not return with a knee injury.

Injuries are starting to pile up at both WR and CB. We may start seeing third-string and practice squad players get their chances in Week 5. The Giants will travel to London to take on the Green Bay Packers. Both teams are 3-1 coming into the game. NY will need guys on both sides of the ball to step up.
