Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

Ivne - You make good points, but I should have expanded a bit. I think that the 5 yard rule will both help and hurt Mike Williams. Because of his tendency to push off to create all that seperation he gets, he could get a lot of offensive pass interference calls against him. He was a big name playing at a big school. He got every call in the world (just like the Lakers did a few years ago.) In the NFL the corners will be able to play him more physical and won't be completely dominated like many of the college corners he faced.

I think he'll be good -- but I don't see a big first year. Out of all the receivers this year, he's the best one in my eyes. Edwards is a very close 2nd. However, had he gotten into the draft last year he woulda fallen below fitz/Williams. That's just my feeling. He'd be a GREAT red zone target (assuming we get the balls to throw on the opponents side of the field) and he has amazing hands. I think he could be a great player, don't get me wrong. Just saying I can see him having a bit of trouble adjusting. However, very few people can get used to how the NFL works in the first year especially at the WR position.

Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

I don't know though... how often do you really see OFFENSIVE pass interference called? I would like to get SOME kind of call, maybe take advantage of the illegal contact rule. It seems like 3 out of 4 times the defensive guy will get called for it.

Malcolm - I believe our team saw more Off. pass INT than we got calls for PI during the season. =p

Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

Seriously? I could have sworn I didn't see any O Pass INT. I DO definitely know we hardly got ANY PI calls.

Thats what Cooley is for. Redzone TD's

Hopefully that's what Portis will be for too.

Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

I'd rather have more than one passing option in the end zone. McCants could be it. Fade to the back corner!

Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

I really would love to see McCants get some more looks in the upcoming season because it doesn't appear like they are trying to shop him anywhere.

Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

Or McCants could be simply cut, that's probably the likely scenario.

Re: Mike Williams and Troy Williamson

I saw Williams run a 4.56 last night. He is a big dude, and he has incredible hands. But I dont think He will slide to 9. I think Minnesota is going to nab him right before us.

Thats why I think that we trade down and pick up Clayton and then hopefully we can pick up another 1st round pick or an early 2nd round pick and pick up a pass rushing DE or DT. Cause I honestly dont think that Williams or Edwards will be around at #9.
