NEW YORK (WFAN) — If David Wilson is as gifted as he is confident, Giants fans will be in for a treat.
New York’s first-round pick thinks he’s a mix between star NFL running backs Arian Foster and Ray Rice. And when the dust settles on his first pro season, he sees a title repeat for the G-Men.
Wilson and his fellow NFL rookies were at the Rose Bowl this weekend for the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event, where SB Nation handed their camera crew to the players as they tried on their new Nike game jerseys for the first time and posed for the trading card companies on hand.
The video certainly proved that this year’s crop of newcomers will be an entertaining bunch. The highlight for Giants fans could be seen just after the two-minute mark. After showing off his acrobatic skills, Wilson delivered his prediction to Cleveland’s top pick, Trent Richardson.
“Super Bowl champs again!” Wilson said, wearing No. 34. “Against the Cleveland Browns, they got a good team. They picked up some players.”
Richardson responded, “That’s a good answer.”
Just don’t tell Gang Green’s second-round pick, Stephen Hill, who had nothing to say but a menacing, “Jets, baby.”
Wilson also had some fun at the expense of Giants second-rounder Rueben Randle.
“Would you please remove your helmet, please. For the interview,” Wilson instructed the wide receiver from LSU. “People want to see the lov–oh no, put it back on!”
