2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Brandon Jacobs a salary-cap casualty and a big hole at running back behind the injury-prone Ahmad Bradshaw, the Giants used a 1st round pick to acquire Wilson. A standout runner at Virginia Tech with big play ability, Wilson topped 1,600 rushing yards in 2011 to go along with 9 touchdowns on the ground. While he failed to catch many passes in college, the Giants feel he has room to develop in that area. Of greater concern are his ability to pass protect and the fumbling issues that he experienced in college. I donít need to remind anybody what head coach Tom Coughlin does to players who canít protect the ball. Also not helping matters is the Giants 32nd ranked run offense from a year ago, which can partially be blamed on the teamís poor offensive line play – an area that wasnít replenished in the offseason. Wilson rates as a RB4/5 entering 2012 and as an upper tier prospect in dynasty leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury David Wilson informed NFL career is over     -- Mon Aug 4 4:50 pm --

Suffered neck burner last week after undergoing 2013 surgery
Informed he can never play football again, David Wilson at the incredibly tender age of 23 offered perspective rare in someone so young. Wilsonís dream of playing in the NFL came to an end after two seasons and only 21 games as the worst-case scenario unfolded around him. He was examined Monday by Dr. Frank Cammisa, the spine specialist who last January performed a cervical fusion on Wilson, an evaluation prompted by the neck burner injury he experienced last Tuesday in practice. Along with Dr. Russell Warren, the Giantsí team physician, Wilson was given the news he braced for but did not want to hear. (New York Post)

FF Today's Take: The Giants and Wilson were both prepared for this news, but it doesn't make it any less disheartening. Wilson will receive his scheduled salary of $997,682 when he is officially placed on IR. As for the Giants, they added Rashad Jennings in free agency to be the lead back in 2014 and drafted Andre Williams, who figures to be the goal-line back and take on more carries as a result of Wilson's departure.
