David Wilson, RB, Giants
2014 Outlook: Do Not DraftLast updated on Aug-18-2014 by Rob Warner
Neck surgery limited the 2012 first round pick from Virginia Tech to just five games last season. Though, Wilson showed flashes in his rookie season, finishing with 71 carries for 358 yards (impressive 5.0 yards per carry). The injury concerns, ball security issues and a crowded backfield all keep Wilson as nothing more than a late-round flier with a lot to prove. He is expected to play a change-of-pace role (behind Rashad Jennings) provided he gets medical clearance. He is being drafted in Round 14 of 12-team league drafts (157.25 ADP).
Editor's note: FFToolbox thought 2013 was going to be a breakout season for Wilson. it never came to pass. If the stars align with his health and workload, Wilson can be a productive backup behind Jennings.
UPDATE: A neck injury has forced his retirement. He can now be seen as an analyst on Pro Football Talk.
