Giants Land Both Solid Back & Returner in Wilson

Initially, the best thing for New York Giants fans about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell introducing their team’s first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft on Thursday night, was hearing Goodell specifically emphasize that it was the “Super Bowl champion” Giants picking 32nd in the first round – something that drew cheers from Giants fans in attendance at Radio City Music Hall before Goodell was able to announce the last selection of the evening.

Yet beyond that, is the realization that the Giants seemed to have helped themselves not once, but twice with the single selection of running back David Wilson with the final pick of the opening round.

A speedy and dynamic player with big-play ability, Wilson not only broke out as a star back during a superb junior season at Virginia Tech last year, but he’s also a proven kick return threat that year in and year out, was often usually lacking in a big way with the Giants.

He can obviously help New York’s offense in that regard, setting up an already potent passing game with a shorter field via the return game.
