The NFL's annual All-Pro team is a distinction handed out to the very best players at their respective positions. Without a single player making the first-team, and a rookie named to the second-team (David Wilson/special teams), it should come as no surprise that the New York Giants failed to meet expectations in 2012.
Several key players underperformed for New York last season. Injuries and a debilitating Super Bowl hangover hampered the team's ability to generate any sustainable success.
With the target now off their backs, the Giants will look to re-establish themselves as contenders this fall.
These five Giants have at one time or another shown the ability to be a top performer at their position. Some are household names, while others are working towards breaking out in 2013. Regardless of their reputation, New York will need each of these players to be at their best if they want to be the first team to ever play a Super Bowl on their home turf. Here are the five Giants most likely to become an NFL All-Pro selection in 2013.
