Four of the Giants’ six draft picks in 2021 played in the Senior Bowl that year.

Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney, who was taken by the Giants with the 20th overall pick in the first round, surprisingly did not play in the game (injured his ankle during practice that week).

Meanwhile, three other Giants draft picks did play that day: Aaron Robinson, Elerson Smith, and Rodarius Williams. Unfortunately, none of them have played much since.
