    a first round pick is never a given. If it doenst workout then so be it. I still think Wilson can be hugely effective if used in the right way depending on his skills and how they pan out.

    Big difference with RB's. If you draft aRB in round 1 he should be starting and contributing right out of the box. Its the nature of that position. WR's and especially CB's are a much different animal.
    Now, when you consider that its been 2 years and we've gotten essentially nothing out of Wilson, its reasonable to say that he is a bust. At least a bust given his draft position. No reason to believe that he won't contribute to the team in the future, but he's used up about half his prime already.

    THAT...is the nature of being a RB in the NFL.

    How has he used up half his prime??? He's had 115 career attempts. Lesean McCoy is 3 years older than him and I'd say McCoy has at least 3-4 years of Elite production left in him.

    4 years is generally the length of an NFL RB's prime. Not for everyone of course. But on average.

    You can't call him a bust when you bench him his entire rookie year and then put a deplorable run blocking line in front of him in his second year. There are plenty of first round picks that tock more than 2 years to develop that ended up being good players.
    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    I loved the Wilson pick and I still like Wilson --- that said I would still like us to get another RB in one of rds 3, 4 or 5.

    Would love to see Jennings/Wilson/Draft Pick back bring back a little 3-headed RB attack.

    Agree 100%

    Can you name 1 first rd RB that took more than 2 years to develop into a premium player? Serious question, because I can't think of even 1. Keep in mind, RB, not other positions.
