The Giants have had a pretty good deal of success with drafting running backs in the last two decades. From Rodney Hampton and Tiki Barber to Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, you can say that Big Blue has had a knack for finding talent at the running back position. Giants fans are hoping that David Wilson turns out to be more like Tiki Barber and less like the other half of the original Thunder and Lightning combo, Ron Dayne.
Going into the 2013 season, the front office seems to be putting all of its chips in the David Wilson basket, releasing Ahmad Bradshaw and basically sending Wilson the message that the future of the running back position lies in his hands. With one season of experience under his belt, the 2013 season is Wilson's chance to earn the job.
