The first-round draft pick for the New York Giants comes in at No. 1 on the list.
David Wilson has very high—and I stress, high—expectations for him this upcoming season. The loss of Brandon Jacobs makes room for a running back to fill his spot so opportunity is knocking very hard on Wilson's door and if he doesn't respond, who knows when the next opportunity will be?
During his career at Virginia Tech, he trail-blazed as a Hokie, finishing his career by setting a school record with 2,291 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns. Wilson was named the 2011 ACC Offensive Player of the Year and attracted a lot of attention at the combine.
His preseason has had its ups and downs, but the same can be said for the rest of those on this list. The reason he is No. 1 is because the Giants have him as their No. 1 prospect and because they believe his potential and ability can help the Giants win games.
He is an agile and explosive player and while he may not be a monster like Jacobs, he very well can help Ahmad Bradshaw move the Giants up the field with his agility.
Wilson will get his chance against the Bears and you can rest assured he will open the door of opportunity and make a definitive impact to put the NFL on notice for the upcoming season.
