Giants GM Jerry Reese was asked about the team's first round pick in an interview with WFAN.
Were you looking for a running back or was David Wilson just the best player available there when it got to you in the first round?:
“First of all, he was the highest player on our board at the time that we picked. That was an easy pick for us. It was a value and a need pick for us, we thought. We lost Brandon Jacobs who did a terrific job for us while he was here. We’ve got Ahmad Bradshaw and he’s going to be the lead dog for us, but we wanted to get another running back at some point. We didn’t want to sacrifice value, but he was the top player on our board.”
