On the subject of Giants RB David Wilson and the team's RB1 job...
“I think he’s in a position to compete to be the guy,” running backs coach Jerald Ingram said. “He has the talent, has the speed, has a few plays from a year ago underneath his belt.”
“Once we put the pads on, we’ll see who is physical, who’s determined to make plays out there,” Ingram said. “I think he’s grown. He has a fairly good understanding of the offense right now. He’s definitely in position to be the guy, but I think just like what we’ve done in the past here, we’re going to be a rotation type team and what certain backs do best, we’ll play. I think he’s a playmaker. He’s definitely going to contribute and help us out.
GM Jerry Reese said that David Wilson could be a "lead back," but didn't anoint him the starter in 2013. Andre Brown figures to get all of the goal line work and may eat into Wilson's touches in the Giants' base offense as well. Don't forget that Brown averaged more YPC (5.3) than did Wilson (5.0). It's no sure thing that Wilson leads the team in touches in 2013.
