Former first-round pick David Wilson was supposed to break out for the Giants in 2013. Understatement alert: that was not the case.

Instead Wilson rushed just 44 times and dealt with an early-season neck injury that kept him off the field and out for the season after Week 5.

There wasn't a guarantee he'd be back for 2014 but Wilson made good progress recently and tweeted on Monday he was "cleared for everything."

The Giants depth chart appears better than it did last year, maybe.

Andre Brown is gone but Andre Williams is an underrated selection in the draft who could be a workhorse of sorts (even if he's not a dynamic back or whatever).

Rashad Jennings is a low-mileage back who can do a lot of things (pass pro, catch the ball, etc.). Peyton Hillis still has a pulse.

No one can be expecting much from Wilson at this point, but simply being able to participate in training camp and provide some hope for production for 2014 gives the group a little more upside than we thought it might have before.
