Chachkes: If his return from the foot injuries are slowed, the Giants will feel his absence regardless of Mr. Wilson's first round selection.
Santucci: When number 44 is out of the game the running game is completely non-existent.
Stack: With Jacobs gone, and David Wilson just a rookie, Bradshaw has to step up his game this year.
Johnson: The bell-cow is back. G-men need him more than ever this year without Jacobs (unless Wilson steps up big time).
Fennelly: Bad feet and all, he is a still a key player even with all the young help in the backfield.
Resch: It is almost a given that he will have to miss some time, but anyone who has watched this team knows how much better the running game is when Bradshaw is on the field. Even with screws in his foot, and even with a slumping (to put it nicely) offensive line, Bradshaw made an impact when he was "healthy" enough to suit up.
Anything that first round pick David Wilson can give the Giants would be great, but it is folly to expect a rookie to come in and carry the running game from day one. Until further notice, Bradshaw is "the man" in the running game...as long as his body can handle it.
