Following Monday night's loss to the Washington Redskins, the New York Giants have dropped three of their past four games. Those kinds of struggles are not unusual for the Giants, though.

They endured a four-game losing streak in 2011 before going on a Super Bowl run, lost three of their last four games in 2009, and four of five (including a playoff loss) in 2008.

New York has often been able to overcome that inconsistency in the past and play its best when it matters most, but the Giants can't continue to walk that tightrope as the Redskins get stronger behind Robert Griffin III and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to look for ways to bring a Super Bowl title to Dallas.

How might the 2013 draft help address some of the Giants' issues? Here's a look at New York's biggest needs at this point and the prospects who might fill those holes.
