New York Giants' Draft Busts: No. 5 ... Jarrod Bunch

The New York Giants do not exactly have a good history the last 40 years or so when it comes to drafting running backs in the first round. The No. 5 selection in our list of worst Giants' No. 1 draft picks sincer 1960 is Jarrod Bunch, a fullback selected with the final pick of the first round in 1991, 27th overall.

Bunch amassed a total of 785 career yards in three NFL seasons. The Giants thought Bunch would step in for Maurice Carthon, but that never happened. Instead, he was a useless spare part.

Players The Giants Could Have Had

Roman Phifer (31, LB, Rams) ... Had 14-year NFL career
Brett Favre (33, QB, Rams) ... Umm, you know this guy?
Ricky Watters (45, RB, San Francisco) ... Five-time Pro Bowler in 10-year career.
