Can David Wilson Be a Star Running Back in the NFL?

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistAugust 27, 2013

David Wilson is undoubtedly an electric running back, but is that enough to be a star in the NFL

If you take the final four games of the 2012 season, the diminutive Wilson averaged 5.74 yards per carry and 2.16 yards after contact. These numbers ranked fourth in the NFL among running backs during that time span, and they have pushed Wilson in the right direction toward stardom.

If you own Wilson in a fantasy league, you may be concerned about Andre Brown getting most of the goal-line touches. 

As a New York Giants fan, you have to smile at the prospect of another thunder-and-lightning tandem in the backfield. 

So, will Wilson follow in the footsteps of the Giants' long tradition of star running backs?

Check out the video above, where NFL Lead Writer Mike Freeman gives you his thoughts on whether Wilson is destined for stardom.
