One of the biggest reasons why Wilson didn’t get more playing time last season with the Giants is because of his inability to pass protect.
Running backs coach Jerald Ingram says Wilson has been improving with his pass protection.
“He’s got to learn to become more of a protector, which he has been working on,” Ingram said. “We’ve tested him within the system, he did well a week ago, knowing what we’re doing and how to protect. Now he’s physically learned how to protect his quarterback, and he’s looking forward to the challenge, which so far I’m pretty excited about where he is right now.”
The better Wilson can protect Eli Manning, the more playing time he’ll get in 2013.
