the guy is quick and he can catch the ball out of the backfield. i dont really see this as a bad pick especially with having an injured bradshaw and then who else after that d.j. ware? i think they might use darell scott for returns.
this guy good?
Giants selected Virginia Tech RB David Wilson with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2012 draft.
The Giants close out the quickest first-round in years by grabbing a 1-2 punch for Ahmad Bradshaw. A two-sport (track) star for the Hokies, Wilson was the 2011 ACC Player of the Year after rushing for a school-record 1,709 yards. Though his instincts, hands, and durability are concerns, Wilson has outstanding burst laterally as well as north and south. Much like Bradshaw, he's constantly fighting for extra yards. Wilson should contribute immediately for the G-Men, accruing RB3/flex value in fantasy leagues while Ahmad Bradshaw falls back to low-end RB2 territor
My buddy used to work for a site where he covered NCAA, he is a Giants fan. He loves this pick.
He said with us getting Rivers, Bennett and Rogers in FA, this was a good pick. Said he thinks he could become a good 1/2 down back and will be a solid kick returner, and thinks there are OL to be had in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Like many of us have said, he said Reece knows what he is doing.

I can't believe there are people who would've rather had Fleener than this kid. I have a feeling it's just a lack of hype around Wilson, but the fact of the matter is that he automatically becomes our best pass catching threat out of the backfield, and has the ability to be a workhorse when Bradshaw has his inevitable foot/ankle injury. And if all else fails, he is a really good return man, which is something we haven't had since god knows when.
Yep. Definitely gotta trust Reese. Honestly I wasn't blown away by anybody else we could pick either. That's what happens when you're super bowl champs at the draft. Wilson is going to be good, imo. From what i've seen, he's hit or miss...but when he hits he REALLY hits. Not a lot of guys can get to and through holes like he can.
I am really curious where Jenkins falls. Same with Marin, Glenn, Hill, etc. Lots of big names still available. If Jenkins is at the Giants pick, they have to take him. I think he's snatched up early, though. 2nd best cornerback in this draft talent wise.
