The Dallas Cowboys used the 6th overall pick on Morris Claiborne. The New York Giants used the 32nd overall pick on David Wilson.

Neither player is having a great start to his NFL career.

Facing a 2nd-and-7, the Giants went at Claiborne and completed an 8-yard pass to Hakeem Nicks, enough for the first down and enough to put New York into field goal range.

That's a minor mistake compared to what fellow rookie David Wilson did on the following play:


Tiki Barber used to have a big fumbling problem as well but the Giants were able to turn that around to the point where he became one of the more sure-handed players in the league. Wilson's got plenty of time to get it right.

He's also got plenty of time to be upset, like he appears to be in this screen grab.
