2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech

Wilson was an absolute force at running back in three years at Blacksburg. Despite setting high standards every season, he still managed to get better and better year in and year out. Wilson rushed 59 times for 334 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman in 2009 (a 5.7 average per carry). Even when he started to see more and more playing time, the average remained the same. He had 113 attempts for 619 yards and five scores as a sophomore before really breaking out in 2011; 290 carries for 1709 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Danville, VA native is also a stellar pass-catcher out of the backfield. After catching no passes as a freshman, Wilson made a total of 37 receptions for 363 yards and five scores over the past two seasons. He stands at just 5'10'', but weighs in at a solid 205 pounds. Wilson may not possess the physicality to be an every-down back in the NFL, but his speed is unbelievable. He was not 100 percent at the NFL combine, but he turned in a 4.35 in the 40-yard dash during pro day workouts. The competition for the No. 2 running back behind Trent Richardson is a furious one, and Wilson could be leading the way slightly ahead of Doug Martin and Lamar Miller. Count on Wilson going off the board late in the first round or early in the second round.
