Running back David Wilson returning to form in 2014 is a huge part of the New York Giants making an offensive resurgence after the abysmal year they had last season. Having missed virtually half the season last year, many were wondering how he would look after his first contact in quite a while at Giants training camp this week.
Well according to Jordan Raanan from NJ.com, Wilson looks just fine out there on the field taking his licks. And he even went so far as to say that he looks explosive and dangerous.
He survived the first contact he’s absorbed since midway through last season. That alone is a positive. Plus, the 2012 first-round pick has looked explosive and dangerous, especially on screen passes. Expect him to be part of the weekly game plan as long as he remains healthy.
Under the direction of first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the Giants are looking to utilize their entire stable of running backs, which also includes Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis and rookie Andre Williams.
But there is no doubt that, when healthy, Wilson is the go-to guy in this offense out of the backfield. He’s the one that will make this offense tick, and it seems as if he’s on the right track so far to becoming that guy once again.
