Of the six rookie running backs from 2011 that received at least 100 carries (Thomas, Murray, Helu, Ingram, Hunter and Carter), only one of them averaged more than five yards per carry, and that was the Dallas Cowboys' DeMarco Murray, who had a 5.5 YPC average.
In all three seasons at Virginia Tech, Wilson averaged at least 5.5 YPC, but as we all know, college statistics don't always transcend into the NFL.
Wilson has put his explosiveness on display this preseason, most notably in preseason performances against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears, where he sported 6.1 and 9.8 YPC averages on at least five attempts.
To put Wilson's goal in perspective, none of the top 10 rushers from the 2011 NFL season averaged a 5.0 YPC average.
While Wilson won't see nearly as many carries as the top NFL backs, it's still unlikely for him to boast a 5.0 YPC average in 2012.
