Giants ink first-rounder David Wilson

The Giants’ rookie take to the field for the first time on Friday.  And before first-round running back David Wilson did so, he first put his name on a contract.

Per a league source, Wilson has signed a four-year contract.  The team will hold an option for a fifth year.

Since Wilson was the last player taken in round one, he arguably would have been better off going one pick later, given that the fifth-year option goes away as of the first pick in round two.

The former Virginia Tech tailback was the third running back taken in the draft.  He fills the void created by the departure of Brandon Jacobs.

  1. The Giants picked up a good player here, as a Hokie Fan, I wish David well in his career!

  2. I was getting sick of Brandon Jacobs tip toeing around the offensive line and trying to break it to the outside when he clearly doesn’t have the speed to do so. Sometimes the guy was easy easily taken down by a CB and other times he’d run right over a LB. Wilson looks like he’s going to be a great number 2 on this team for this year and possibly overtake Bradshaw by next year.

    Time will tell………… Yaaaaaaaaaawn

    Rashard Mendenhall 9td’s = playoff loser

    Ahmad Bradshaw 9 td’s = Super Bowl winner

  4. I Youtube’ed his highlights and the first video that came up, other than the crazy backflip one, was him getting his team (Team USA) fired up before game. Gave me goosebumps! Hope he has that same intensity on Sundays.

  5. The league better watch out if this kid turns out to be special. If so an offense with Manning, Nicks Cruz and this kid could be unstoppable.

  6. Eli got himself one hell of a draft class. Another huge target in Randle and a great runner and pass catcher out of the backfield in Wilson. Combine these guys with Nicks, Cruz, and Bradshaw (potentially Bennett) they will be a tough offense to stop.

    The G-Men are poised to make it back to the playoffs and defend their Super Bowl title.
