Yeah, I thought he was a joke when I heard they signed him, but after looking at the dude, he is an absolute monster. He made dockery look like a tail back. I got pretty excited watching him. Especialy when I saw Bugel tutoring him one on one.

I like his dedication, and if he can stay healthy, we may have struck gold. I think he's been impressive so far. At least from the little I've seen of him and the reports I've read.

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

Ok ok i'll admit i'm starting to climb on the Mike Williams bandwagon too LOL.

...honestly I think it's all about him staying healthy and dedicated. Obviously he's got the talent and the physical gifts, but it sounds like bum injuries and a lack of focus and intensity held him back. I read in one article he just didn't commit himself to football after being drafted 4th overall...as in taking vacations instead of practicing w/ the team etc. He definitely sounds dedicated at this point and losing 60lbs over the last few months is really impressive. Hey, aren't we due a diamond in the rough on the offensive side of the ball anyway? When/who was the last one?

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

Maybe Williams could play RT and RG at the same time and save us a roster spot.

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

If we're fortunate enough big Mike will have the potential to play LT by Week 8. Key word potential. I hate to think what would happen to us if Samuals went down again.

He was never considered a LT prospect, always played at RT. I don't see that changing.

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

Could you see a line up of

Samuals
Dockery
Jansen
Bridges
Williams

This would be one heavy O-line to push around. Keep the rest for when one needs a breather or gets hurt.

The thought of Williams out there is sort of funny cuz he dwarfs everyone. For just one snap I'd like to see him at guard next to Rabach...the only guy left sub 300.

Or have him at tackle with either Cooley or Davis next to him. LOL.

He's to good (when healthy) in pass protection to warrant a move inside. Ironically coming out of college his pass blocking was considered much better then his run blocking. Thats mainly why I suggested he could serve time at LT should, god forbid, Samuals went down. Apparently though Williams has always played RT. It's just that part of the reason he was so highly regarded in 2002 was because he protected the blind side for a southpaw at Texas.

If Thomas doesn't hold up from his injury we could actually see this at some point. Jansen could hold his own against bigger NT's better than Rabach.
