If Barber is to believed, David Wilson could erase his records. “He is as dynamic a player at that position that the Giants have ever had,” Barber said this week via ESPNNewYork.com. “… I didn’t have breakaway speed like he does. I wasn’t the athlete like he is. I worked hard to get where I was. As long as he doesn’t take that for granted and works hard on top of it, he can be fantastic.”
To say that evaluating David Wilson has been challenging would be an understatement. We think he has high upside (see here and here) but also there’s the whole issue of whether we can really rely on Tom Coughlin to play him.
Barber hasn’t probably made things any easier as there’s about a 95% chance he’s just trying to suck up to the organization after pissing them off for so long.
