  • David Wilson

    Many of you may remember that I did a series on David Wilson’s game at Virginia Tech and how it translates to the NFL. One of Wilson’s issues was the tendency to bounce runs outside to attempt the big play. I euphemistically call this “the corner store,” because it is fun to visit but few […]

  • No. 4 RB David Wilson

    4. David Wilson, running back, Virginia Tech (5-9, 206) Physically, Wilson might have as much upside as any back in this draft, and from this perspective, he might be the best back to come out of Virginia Tech.

  • RB David Wilson’s Vision: Part II – The Low Lights

    As I explained yesterday, Vision is often poorly defined as an abstract, catchall intangible that is vital to the success of a ball carrier. Vision should be something we actively try to define and despite its intuitive characteristics I believe there are major components of the skill set that running backs learn as late as […]

  • RB David Wilson’s Vision: Part I Raw Skill in Action

    To come to be you must have a vision of Being, a Dream, a Purpose, a Principle. You will become what your vision is.   – Peter Nivio Zarlenga Vision is a magical term.
