    Rookie runners ready to roll

    Excerpt: "In the long run, David Wilson might turn out to be a more productive running back than Doug Martin. But in the here and now, Martin is the more NFL-ready player.

    So says Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

    After Trent Richardson, the two top-rated running backs in the 2012 NFL Draft were Martin out of Boise State and Wilson out of Virginia Tech. They will be on display Sunday when Wilson and the Giants face the Buccaneers with Martin. Giants general manager Jerry Reese insists Wilson was the top-rated back on his draft board and that he would have been the pick even if Martin was available." Read more...

    I'd personally go for someone with more future upside anyway... If we can rebuild the O-line the next couple of years, between that and a fully developed Wilson we'll be able to transition once Eli's years are finished...

    I hope we get things turned around before Eli leaves

    This is about what we thought when we drafted Wilson.

    Wilson has more upside imo and we (supposedly) didn't need the NFL-ready back right away.
