Virginia Tech RB David Wilson's 2010 Success Rates in Context

This post was originally a lot longer. But Google Chrome failed while hitting publish and it never autosaved. I don't feel like rewriting it in it's entirety.

A reader e-mailed me and said the David Wilson third-down success rates I published Monday lacked context. Context comes after the jump.

Here are third- and fourth-down success rates for Evans, Williams and Wilson in 2010.

RB Att Succ Pct
Darren Evans 2010 14 10 0.714
Ryan Williams 2010 8 5 0.625
David Wilson 2010 15 7 0.467
Total 37 22 0.595

Here are the third- and fourth-down success rates for all three during their freshman seasons.
