David Wilson, RB

Draft: First round, 32nd overall

Snaps/Usage: 16 total snaps in reserve running back role. 17 kick returns at 26.3 yards/return

Notes: No coach likes fumbles, but head coach Tom Coughlin’s doghouse is often the loneliest. After fumbling away the second carry of his career, Wilson has seen limited opportunities on offense. Add to that two drops on his four targets in the passing game, and he has been firmly entrenched miles away from Coughlin’s good graces. He finally showed his explosiveness last week against the Cleveland Browns as he scored his first touchdown on a 40-yard run to bring his season rushing total to 52 yards on eight carries. He still has a ways to go before he’s entrusted as a weekly contributor, but last week was a step in the right direction.

Rueben Randle, WR

Draft: Second round, 64th overall

Snaps/Usage: 74 total snaps as reserve WR, with season high of 38 Week 5 vs. Cleveland. Returned seven punts for 66 yards (9.4 yards/return).

Notes: With injuries to starting WR Hakeem Nicks, as well as his replacement Ramses Barden, Randle saw his first extended action last Sunday against the Browns. Playing primarily on the outside, he was targeted nine times, picking up six catches for 82 yards. He did register the first drop of his career, but showed his big play ability on a 36-yard gain late in the second quarter. He is elusive for a big wide receiver and may be able to work into the rotation even more as injuries and quarterback Eli Manning’s confidence allow.

Jayron Hosley, CB

Draft: Third round, 94th overall

Snaps/Usage: 121 total snaps, 79 covering the slot

Notes: Before getting hurt late in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers, Hosley had just cracked the starting lineup after he began the season primarily as a nickel and dime option. A plethora of injuries in the secondary certainly helped the cause, but Hosley was playing well before missing two tackles in that Carolina game. Opponents have completed five of nine passes thrown his way for 76 yards and a QB Rating of 44.0, though he was helped by an errant throw on a drag route by QB Cam Newton that resulted in a gift-wrapped first interception of his career.

Markus Kuhn, DT

Draft: Seventh round, 239th overall

Snaps/Usage: 74 total snaps, 60 at DRT

Notes: Kuhn has been a part of the defensive line rotation in all five of the Giants’ games, with his season-high of 28 snaps coming last week. He’s played in both base and nickel sets, and he’s been in on 37 runs and 37 passes. Kuhn has yet to record an official pressure though he had a hurry negated by a penalty and he’s batted two passes to give him a +0.9 pass rush grade.

Will Hill, SCB

Draft: Undrafted (entered league in 2010)

Snaps/Usage: 91 total snaps, 88 covering the slot

Notes: An unexpected rookie, Hill came out of Florida after the 2010 season. He was a highly touted recruit and after a good career in college, Hill went undrafted and was not even invited to a training came after teaching the world how not to handle a twitter account. His unprofessional foray into the world of social media turned off NFL teams, but he’s found a home in New York. With the injuries in the secondary, including fellow rookie Hosley, Hill has seen his playing time increase as 73 of his 91 snaps have come in the last two weeks in a slot cornerback role. Opponents have completed all three passes thrown his way for a total of 35 yards, though his 15.7 cover snaps/target is good for third in the league among all slot cornerbacks.

Unfortunately for Hill, his comeback attempt will be halted for another four weeks as he recently failed an NFL drug test. He will be eligible to return early next month.

Other Giants rookies: Fourth-round TE Adrien Robinson has been used as a blocker on all three of his snaps this season.
