Where Will CB Aaron Robinson Fit on Giants Defense?

Aaron Robinson probably won’t regain a starting job as a perimeter cornerback, but that doesn’t mean he lacks value to this defens

New York Giants cornerback Aaron Robinson has all the talent and pedigree to become a successful defender in the NFL. But the one thing he hasn’t been able to give the team in his first two seasons as a pro has been his availability.


A Deerfield Beach, Florida native and former four-star recruit, Robinson heard his name called by the Giants during the 2021 NFL Draft when he was selected 71st overall in the third round. He signed a four-year rookie contract with the team shortly after and is entering his third rodeo after the first two were uneventful and marred with health obstacles.


Robinson started the season on the reserve/PUP list in his debut campaign and was not reactivated until early November 2021. Then, last fall, an appendix procedure kept him off the field for two games before he subsequently went on the injured reserve list with a knee injury in October.


Add it all up, and that comes to 11 games played, 32 tackles, and four deflected passes for the All-American Athletic Conference player who used to be a ballhawk at the college ranks.

After initially committing to Florida for his college ball, Robinson reversed his decision and attended the University of Alabama, where he spent his freshmen season as a reserve corner and special teams contributor for 13 games. He transferred to UCF in 2017 and remained there until 2020, when he had 54 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, three interceptions, and 10 deflected passes in his junior year and made second-team All-AAC the season.
