Was Wilson the Right Pick?

A very interesting selection from Reese and the G-Men last night. It was a real head scratcher. A projected 2nd round pick, the RB from Virginia Tech is talented, he has breakaway speed, has the ability to break tackles in the open field, has another gear when he breaks free.  He also has decent hands. I’m sure there will be some comparisons to Ahmad Bradshaw.

Unfortunately there seems to be a bit of a downside that makes him a bit like the last 1st round RB the Giants seleted, Ron Dayne. Wilson is an indecisive runner and hesitates at the line when there is not a clear hole and starts running east and west. That is never a good thing in the NFL. He could be a help in the return game with his speed and tackle breaking ability and has had a 92 yd return, but I’m sure sure that makes him 1st round talent.

The Giants did have some bigger concerns than RB that could have been addressed. With players like TE Coby Fleener and O linemen like Konz, Glenn, Martin and Adams all available I wonder if this pick could have been used to address those needs considering last years starting  TE will not be ready by seasons open. And the O line did struggle at times last year, especially with Baas at center.

So was Wilson the right pick? Time will tell, we all hope so and will all be watching.
