Excerpt: "Don't look now, but New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) rookie running back David Wilson (http://www.giants101.com/tag/david-wilson/)continues to rack up multiple nominations and awards, with the most recent coming courtesy of Pro Football Weekly (http://www.profootballweekly.com/2013/01/10/pfwpfwa-2012-all-rookie-team), who named Wilson to their 2012 All-Rookie Team as a kick returner.

"Giants RB David Wilson (http://www.giants101.com/tag/david-wilson/) didnít make the expected impact out of the backfield, but he was a huge threat on kickoff returns, returning one 97 yards for a touchdown. He had seven returns of 40 yards or more, the most in the league."

Wilson's 1,533 kickoff return yards were a franchise record, but just one of many all-time team marks he set in 2012. He also set a franchise rookie record (http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/09/new-york-giants-steve-weatherford-david-wilson-set-franchise-records-other-statistical-notes/) with 1,925 all-purpose yards (second in the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) amongst rookies) and the franchise record for all-purpose yards (http://www.giants101.com/2012/12/10/new-york-giants-david-wilson-sets-franchise-record-with-327-all-purpose-yards/) (327) in a single game. He wasnamed NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for week 14 (http://www.giants101.com/2012/12/12/new-york-giants-david-wilson-named-nfc-special-teams-player-of-the-week/) after said single-game performance."

the future is bright with this kid. my feeling is people are gonna look back to their reactions to drafting wilson the same way the opposition to drafting jpp do...imo, he can be a top 3 rb no joke. i dont see more than a couple of rbs who have such an explosive skill set made of power, agility, tremendous speed and quickness, agility...like each one of those aspects with wilson is like tops in the league or right there. a lot of the rbs have one elite aspect/trait like j.charles and speed. wilson has a combination of elite traits/measurements...skies the limit and maybe even thats selling him short lol he can jump real high too

Most kickoff return yards is a dubious record. It represents that the other team scored alot of points!

Did you read it? He had 7 returns for 40+ yards! The Giants gave up a lot of yards, but were 12th in scoring defense at 21.5 ppg, which is kind of misleading because before the Baltimore and Atlanta game they were actually much higher. He didn't have big return days in either game.
