WILSON MORE BARBER CLONE THAN JACOBS REPLACEMENT (http://cache.profootballweekly.com/2012/04/27/wilson-more-barber-clone-than-jacobs-replacement)

"Let’s get this out of the way first: New Giants RB David Wilson, the final
pick of the Thursday’s first round, is not a replacement for Brandon Jacobs.<div class="m10l m10r"><div class="story_body line ">


First, there are few players who fit the Jacobs mold — large man who likes to
dance in the hole — and in a way, Wilson is really his opposite. He’s quick,
decisive, can break tackles (with elusiveness rather than power) and sees holes
before they open. That is the anti-Jacobs, if I ever saw him.</p>


Really, Wilson has a little Tiki Barber in him, and that’s not necessarily a
bad thing. Wilson is about the same size, can catch the ball and has a likeable
personality. Barber, Barber and Barber. But here’s one more comparison that will
need work: Wilson is a fumbler.</p>


Nine fumbles in 499 college touches is not going to cut it for a Tom
Coughlin-coached team, so they’ll work on his hand placement (like they did with
Barber) and curb the problem.</p>


In the meantime, Wilson could be used on kickoffs — where he might be best
right away — to push Da’Rel Scott and a few players and work his way into the RB
rotation. Ahmad Bradshaw can be the lead back, with D.J. Ware and Scott all
competing for reps.</p>


Barber started five games and totaled 810 yards (511 rushing, 299 receiving)
and four TDs as a rookie. The results might be similar on offense for Wilson as
a rookie, so be forewarned, Giants fans. This is a talented player with some
burst, but he has a few things to work on before he breaks out.</p>


But that’s just the way the Giants like it. Their top four draft picks barely
played as rookies last year. Didn’t seem to hurt them too much."</p></div></div>

I have tears in my eyes I'm laughing so hard. I love Harooni, he's a breath of fresh air around here. Especially when he gets his Metro going.....
