Terrance Williams is soft.. He would not fit here.. We need wideouts who will put the time in to block down the field for Adrian.
I hope we stay away from him..
Hopkins......Everything I can find on this guy is that he is a "Catch it if it gets close" guy, just like we need at the Z. Problem is, his one weakness is that he doesn't run real precise routes.
Given that our scheme dictates that the QB throw to a spot that the WR will eventually get to (precise route running) I would think the staff will look long and hard at Hopkins to see if they can fix his route running. If they can't your gonna see alot of INT's if Ponder throws to spots a WR doesn't get to.
Williams - The more I study him the more I'm convinced he will grade out as a X at the next Level. That means 2 - 5 receptions a game in our scheme. Not sure you burn a first or even a second on a kid for that production.
My guess is they are looking for one of the "Physical" guys like Patterson to slip to them in the first and if that doesn't happen they will look at a Hunter in the second. Both can boy up at the Z, or step out and play the X.
What I noticed about the Hopkins highlights is that he often has somebody right on him, as in, he's not getting very open, but does go get the ball.

What I liked about the Williams highlights, is how many off-target catches he makes. Kid just seems to make smooth adjustments on the fly to some slightly off target throws...

Hopkins supposedly has the better speed, but Williams looks more open, more often...? One thing I do like to see is both have three years averaging over 50+ receptions! After the Williamson pick, one year of 50 catches wouldn't be enough to warrant an early pick anymore.
