    Bucs' Doug Martin "further along" in some areas than David Wilson, Kevin Gilbride say


    Excerpt: "Kevin Gilbride gave a frank appraisal when asked to compare Doug Martin, the rookie running back drafted 31st overall by the Buccaneers, and David Wilson, the rookie running back drafted 32nd overall by the Giants.

    "Different styles. I think David has great explosion and great speed," the Giants offensive coordinator said today. "I think Doug Martin looked more -- what’s the word I want to say? -- versatile. Ready to do all aspects: pass protection, pass catching as well as running. What they did offensively and what Virginia Tech asked of David are two completely different things. In some respects, (Martin) is a little further along in those aspects at playing the position."

    I think we all knew that pretty much when we drafted him. Martin was more ready but Wilson has a big upside.
    Spin that Webb young Davis
