New York Giants select David Wilson, Grade B-

I have to wonder if the New York Giants were prepared to take Doug Martin and panicked when the Bucs moved up and landed him with the 31st pick.
David Wilson is a decent prospect, who I gave a 2nd-round grade, but I’m not excited about how he fits in New York.

As long as he holds on to the football he’ll be a quality running back, but just doesn’t project as a difference maker with the Giants. Wilson has a similar style to Ahmad Bradshaw, and I don’t think they complement each other well.

Jerry Reese usually goes for the best available player, which he clearly did not do in this situation. He could have added Cordy Glenn or Jonathan Martin and arguably landed the best available player, and still filled a need.
