Rookie Review: Brandon Wilds

Wilds was used sparingly by the Jets and may find himself as the odd man out in 2017. We're moving through our rookie contributors from 2016, and we're going to start getting down into the depths of the UDFA's now. As Brandon Wilds is still a Jet, I thought I'd quickly just recap his year. It was no surprise to see Brandon go undrafted in 2016. He didn't have a bad career at South...

Wilds sees 'totally different offense' with Mangus in charge

Since Steve Spurrier resigned from his post as head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks, the new coaching regime has made it a point of emphasis to run the football. Not only can South Carolina theoretically control the clock, but it plays more to the strength of signal-caller Perry Orth -- which is throwing off of play-action as opposed to slinging the ball vertically down the...

South Carolina finds offensive balance in win over Vandy

South Carolina has been an inconsistent football team throughout the year thus far, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The ground game has been somewhat neutralized, largely due to injuries suffered by Brandon Wilds. Throwing the football has also been an adventure at times as a result of the constant change at the position (also due to injury). As such, the team hasn...

The return of Wilds could boost South Carolina offense considerably

The myriad of injuries suffered by running back Brandon Wilds have directly correlated with South Carolina's slow start to the 2015 season. A senior out of South Carolina, Wilds has missed the last two games, and played sparingly in the Gamecocks' blowout to Georgia. With that said, he's still the second-leading rusher on the team, and has run to the tune of a 5.2 yards-per-carry...

South Carolina plans to utilize its deep backfield vs. Kentucky

Although this is a Steve Spurrier-coached squad, South Carolina sure appears to be a team built to run the football. The three-pronged attack in the backfield includes Brandon Wilds, Shon Carson and David Williams. Each brings something a little different to the table. Wilds is the biggest of the three, and is the most natural in terms of catching the football out of the backfield...

Ex-South Carolina Star Marcus Lattimore Says Gamecocks’ Backfield Is “Ridiculous”

Former South Carolina star Marcus Lattimore was an electrifying running back before injuries derailed his career. If anyone knows what good running backs look like, he does. According to Lattimore, the current South Carolina backfield of Brandon Wilds, Dave Williams and Shon Carson is more than enough to make up for the loss of 2015 NFL Draft pick Mike Davis.  This backfield is...
