2012 Rookie RBs: David Wilson, New York Giants

Strengths: Wilson is one of the most explosive runners in this draft. He can change direction with ease and doesn't lose much speed when he cuts. Wilson has the speed to beat defenders to the corner, and he's also fast enough to outrun opponents who take good angles. Wilson was the best in the nation for yards-after-contact and doesn't go down easy.

Weaknesses: He likes to bounce too many runs outside, and that simply won't work consistently at the pro level. Wilson also is a known fumbler, and he openly questioned the coaching staff and playcalling in college. That also won't work at the pro level.

2012 Outlook: Wilson should win the primary backup job behind Ahmad Bradshaw. He'll have to correct his ball security issues if he wants to stay out of Tom Coughlin's doghouse.

Dynasty Outlook: Has the potential to be a top-15 fantasy back when he takes over as the primary ball carrier.

NFL Comparison: The 2008 version of Jamaal Charles.
