David Wilson Can’t Grasp Giants Playbook

Giants rookie running back David Wilson has struggled so far in camp. The 32nd overall pick hasn’t been able to pick up on the Giants playbook.

“And with the Giants’ coaches concerned about rookie David Wilson’s grasp of the playbook at this point, Ware might easily surpass last year’s 46 carries, which was a career-high for the sixth-year veteran.”  Mike Galaforo of the Newark-Star Ledger reports.

The Giants drafted Wilson with the intent for him to be Brandon Jacobs‘ replacement. Like Galaforo noted, if the rookie back can’t pick up the playbook, DJ Ware could be in line to take carries away from Wilson and be Ahmad Bradshaw‘s backup this season.

    Huh? Wilson hasn’t disappointed anyone and it’s a matter of time before he forces his way into the #1 slot. Garafolo’s comment simply means that the Giants coaches demand RB’s have a grasp on the passing game and their protection assignments before they get 1st team reps. Obviously a rookie at this point will not have this command so the reps go to the guy who’s got several years in the system. Completely inaccurate context.
