The Giants tailback combo of Ahmad Bradshaw and rookie David Wilson will undoubtedly be able to keep the defense honest, and then some.
Bradshaw missed four games last year due to injury, and totaled only 659 yards, albeit with nine touchdowns. His last full season was 2010, in which he proved his starting capability—he torched defenses for 1,235 and eight scores. When healthy, Bradshaw has proven his ability to be a feature back in the NFL.
The Giants drafted David Wilson in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft for a reason. They love his speed, and view him similarly to Bradshaw. It's not at all unfair to expect Wilson—who finished fourth in the nation last year as a junior with 1,700 yards on the ground—to immediately pay huge dividends for the Giants.
These two will not only act as supplements to Eli Manning's passing attack, but also as weapons within it.
Bradshaw ranked fifth on the Giants last season in receptions with 34 in only 12 games, including three separate five-reception games.
Wilson's number wasn't called on through the air all that often in his time at Virginia Tech—he recorded 37 receptions in three seasons there—but Bradshaw wasn't much of a receiving threat until he teamed up with Manning in East Rutherford.
Bradshaw's sophomore season at Marshall resulted in an astounding 56 receptions for 381 yards. In his freshman and junior years, however, he combined for only 31.
Bradshaw had his impressive sophomore pass-catching season to his record, while none of Wilson's seasons came close in that regard. What Wilson does have, though, is a distinguished top-tier and two-time champion Eli Manning—something Bradshaw lacked at the time he was drafted by New York.
