in his rookie year, unless there's an injury.</P>


This coaching staff has consistently shown that until a back can prove that he's got his pass protection assignments down so our franchise QB isn't at risk on passing plays, they just don't see alot of field time.</P>


that's the way it was with Jacobs, Bradshaw, and Scott.</P>


I suspect other than on obvious running plays,Wilson will have to cut his teeth picking up blitzers before he's given the ball alot.</P>


and by the sounds of things, that's something that's been acknowledged as a skill he needs to improve on already.</P>


Either way, love the type of back he is, and hate the fans that hate this pick.</P>


Reese, i ripped you last offseason, and i learned my lesson.</P>


I'm all in on this FO's drafting strategy, whatever it is.</P>

You put Martin instead of Wilson.

Also think Wilson is going to be a solid contributor this year. He'll get his carries and contribute heavily on specials and in the return game...imo

Why are you talking about the Bucs pic? We drafted Wilson. I think you meant Wilson right?

That and if he knows what's good for him, when he is given his chances in pre-season, he better not fumble the ball because TC will burry him on the depth chart.</P>

The kidwill fumble and miss blocks and make the kind of mistakes that rookies make. TC has zero tolerance for any of that foolishness, so we may not see a lot of him if he doesn't learn from his mistakes. Bradshaw fumbled a lot. He still fumbles every now and then. We were blessed to fall on his fumbles during our mythical SB run. </P>


If he shows he's a homerun hitter we will play him. Remember how Tiki used to fumble. It didn't matter, he was too good to take off the field. We just kept giving him the ball until he corrected the problem. I think JR sees a lot of Tiki in Wilson's potential. I do.</P>

I agree.</P>


I understand OP comments, and agree, TC isn't going to rush out a guy that can't pass protect.</P>


But this kid is going to get his carries....he'll be worked into the offense, gradually.</P>


A big difference between last year and this season is that Jacobs is gone, and right now, Bradshaw continues to have foot problems.</P>


TC Quotes:</P>


“He’s the kind of a guy who will add very much to our present situation in terms of the big play-potential,’’ coach Tom Coughlin said. “He’s one of those guys who has the speed and the maneuverability to make the big play.’’
</P>


Reese Quotes:</P>


“He’s a terrific football player,’’ Reese said. “This guy loves to play football. He can do anything you want him to do. He’s a good piece to add to our running back stable.’’
</P>

Regarding the fumbles, Coughlin addressed that:</P>


He has had a problem with fumbles in his career — seven last year — because of what Coughlin described as “flamboyant all over the place stuff’’ but added “he just has to learn.’’

But, when you watch the tape, he's carrying the ball high and tight. Fundamentally, he's fine. And I'm sure he's going to be coached up to understand that with Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, etc on offense, the team isn't expecting - or wants to see - the wacky stuff he pulled in college.</P>


In short, if he wants to see the field, he's going to stick with the designed play, and protect the ball.</P>


As far as pass protection....I'm sure that will come. But they didn't draft him for his blocking ability...the ball is supposed to be in his hands.</P>

I expect 10 to 12 touches a game minimum for Wilson this coming year. I see him at least splitting time with Bradshaw.</P>

This article was written for the Chicago Tribue (i.e, the Bears) a couple days ago. But it could just as well apply to Bradshaw, too....</P>

<H1 itxtNodeId="129" itxtHarvested="0"><FONT size=3>NFL draft can be wake-up call for vets</FONT></H1>
<DIV id=mod-article-subtitle class=mod-articlesubtitle itxtNodeId="90" itxtHarvested="0">
<H2 itxtNodeId="130" itxtHarvested="0"><FONT size=3>If team selects player at their position high, it reflects on how they truly are regarded</FONT></H2></DIV>
<P itxtNodeId="173" itxtHarvested="0">Rookies aren't just drafted to provide "competition" or "depth" to the roster — the buzzwords we hear constantly at this time on the NFL calendar. That's classic "coach speak" that will be filtered out through news conferences at Halas Hall and elsewhere over the weekend.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="172" itxtHarvested="0">But it's far from the truth.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="171" itxtHarvested="0">There is no "competition" with first-round picks. They are drafted to play, to start and to push veterans out of the way. Those high-priced rooks are an investment in the team's future so management (and coaches) will give them ample opportunities to see the field on opening day.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="170" itxtHarvested="0">As a veteran, you might believe you had a good season the year before. That's fine. Think whatever you want throughout the winter months and the beginning of the offseason program.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="169" itxtHarvested="0">However, the draft will tell you exactly how the team views your talents.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="168" itxtHarvested="0">A rookie drafted at your position early this weekend? Hey, I have bad news for you, buddy. Your time probably is limited. Call your agent and complain if you want, but the writing is on the wall.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="167" itxtHarvested="0">The club isn't just upgrading its roster; it is, in fact, upgrading over you.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="166" itxtHarvested="0">Maybe the veteran can hold off a rookie during camp and keep his starting job to open the season. That's possible, considering rookies get lost trying to find the bathroom in the team facility when they arrive.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="165" itxtHarvested="0">But, eventually, that rookie is going to get a legitimate shot to take the veteran's job.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="164" itxtHarvested="0">I've been there multiple times. With the Rams, it was Adam Archuleta. With the Redskins, it was Sean Taylor. And with the Bills (my final stop on a journeyman career), it was Donte Whitner.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="163" itxtHarvested="0">Those first-round safeties were drafted to contribute immediately. Those thoughts of mine actually competing for a starting spot? Limited. Back to special teams and covering kicks.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="162" itxtHarvested="0">These draftees will experience a level of nervousness this weekend they never have felt before while they sit by the <SPAN style="BACKGROUND: none transparent scroll repeat 0% 0%; COLOR: darkgreen" id=itxthook0w0 class="itxtrst itxtrstspan itxthookspan">phone</SPAN> (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-04-25/sports/ct-spt-0426-bowen-bears-nfl-draft--20120425_1_nfl-draft-nfl-calendar-vets#) waiting (and sometimes begging) for it to ring. All they want is an opportunity to see their name flash across the screen and hear their new coach or general manager on the other end of the line welcoming them to the NFL.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="161" itxtHarvested="0">It's a great feeling, a once in a lifetime experience they never will forget. Now, they will get paid to play <SPAN style="BACKGROUND: none transparent scroll repeat 0% 0%; COLOR: darkgreen" id=itxthook1w0 class="itxtrst itxtrstspan itxthookspan">football</SPAN> (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-04-25/sports/ct-spt-0426-bowen-bears-nfl-draft--20120425_1_nfl-draft-nfl-calendar-vets#). It's a beautiful thing.</P>
<P itxtNodeId="160" itxtHarvested="0">The Bears head into this draft with a new boss in Phil Emery who already has shown he is willing to make the necessary moves to improve this club. That continues Thursday night and throughout Friday and Saturday.</P>
