With only one full NFL season in the books so far, it may seem like a stretch to include David Wilson in this spot, but he deserves it based on potential alone. The Giants selected Wilson with the 32nd overall pick in 2011 with the hopes that he would be the face of the future in the Giants backfield with Brandon Jacobs leaving for San Francisco. Now, with Ahmad Bradshaw gone as well, it seems as if that future is a lot closer than we thought.
Wilson should have a solid chance to compete for the starting job in training camp this summer, and take control of the reigns in the Giants' running game. With four touchdowns in his rookie season and the flashes of explosiveness that he can bring to the table, the future is looking bright.
