The New York Giants are prone to taking the best player available – especially when he has size. There were a few choices for the Giants here that fit that role. Jonathan Martin, Bobby Massie and Cordy Glenn all fit the mold at offensive line. Coby Fleener did at tight end.

But instead, the Giants added a playmaker in Virginia Tech running back David Wilson. He's a speedy back, but much stronger than he's often given credit. He's not a direct style replacement for Brandon Jacobs, but will be a factor for the G-Men.

Quick scouting notes: If there is an open running lane, few players can hit the hole and come out of it as well as Wilson. He's a speed-first runner who developed more power to his game as a junior.
