    In depth look at Wilson

    Overall Impressions of Wilson: Wilsonís great acceleration and
    willingness to bang into players without a lot of patience is
    reminiscent of Darren McFadden during the Raiders RBís college career. Wilson has better cutting ability than McFadden, but like McFadden, CJ Spiller, LeSean McCoy, and Jamaal Charles,
    Wilson needs to learn to become a better decision maker at the line of
    scrimmage. He tries to bounce runs to the corner too often and heíll
    even attempt to reverse his field once his initial bounce doesnít work.



    Accepting a short gain rather than a big loss is something Wilson
    has a hard time doing at this stage of his career. Based on the recent
    success of the players listed above, Wilson has the same kind, if not
    specific style, of athleticism to develop into a star at the position.
    His RSP score is lower than it could potentially be due to the 14 points
    of vision fundamentals he has yet to master.




    Heís also not consistent with using his left arm when he carries
    the football to the left side of the field but he did it enough times
    that Iím giving him credit (all but once in this game). His
    footwork-punch coordination needs to be refined. He often delivers a
    punch when his feet arenít in good position against the defender heís
    tring to block and this can get him into trouble with better edge
    rushers. However, the potential to develop into a good pass protector is
    there.




    Wilsonís quickness, speed, balance, and stop-start
    agility is among the best in the country and it makes him a special
    athlete/runner in the open field. Get him in space and heís a nightmare
    to bring down.
    When heís disciplined about what heís doing
    conceptually, he has the pad level, acceleration, and technique to be
    productive as a between the tackles, chain-moving runner. Physically he
    might have as much upside as any back in this draft and heís the best
    back to come out of Va. Tech from this perspective since Kevin Jones. He
    catches the ball well with his hands and he has potential to develop
    into a good pass protector because he generally diagnoses the blitzes
    that he Va Tech faces and his initial footwork before contact is good.


    Wilson is a "strong," 205 pounds and I think he can probably add
    another 10 pounds to his frame as he matures. Talent-wise I donít know
    if thereís a better runner in this draft other than Trent Richardson and
    Wilson probably has better speed and lateral agility. What he has to
    learn makes him more of a boom-bust pick, but I believe based on past
    history of backs like the ones I mention with my criticism of his game
    that Wilson will make the transition to a smarter runner that the NFL
    requires

    I like the pick
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!
