The 2013 NFL Draft is right around the corner and one of the biggest questions heading into next season for the New York Giants is what to expect from the ground game. The Giants will be playing without Ahmad Bradshaw in 2013 as they will rely on Andre Brown and David Wilson to carry the load instead.
Sure, the potential is certainly there for Brown and Wilson to take New York’s ground game to a whole new level next season, but when it comes to Brown setting a goal of recording 22 touchdowns–he may want to pump the breaks just a little bit considering how little his experience he has so far at the pro level.
Brown certainly showed potential at times during the 2012 season as he finished with 385 rushing yards to go along with eight touchdowns before breaking his leg, but he may be setting his goals a little too high for next year as he’s hoping to record 22 touchdowns. It would be one thing if Brown was as talented as some of the other top running backs in the league, but the truth is he’s inexperienced when compared to the rest and still has a long way to go before 22 touchdowns is even an option.
The potential is certainly there for a running back like Brown, but he still has a long way to go before he’ll even become close to reaching that sort of milestone. Instead, Brown should just focus on carrying the Giants’ load in the ground game to help them compete in the NFC East in 2013.
