    Did Williamson catch a lot of deep passes in college?

    Sorry if this has been already discussed. I did a search and couldn't find much to answer my question.

    Did TW catch a lot of deep passes in college? I remember seeing a lot of video footage, but most of them seemed to be screens or slants. Does anyone have some video to show that he could catch the ball in college?

    Well, if he did he used them all up in college too.

    For those of you looking for perspective on him, here is an interview he gave to Mel Kiper before he was drafted.

    there are some pretty interesting snippets in there.

    Where did this stud go?

    He had a sideline catch where he one-handed it with a defender on his back.!!!

    99 yard TD vs UVA !!!

    I have to say, I am a pretty conservative fan emotionally but this got me ready for the season. I would love to see one of these popped off against the Bears on the first drive.


    BTW can anyone instruct me how to get the you tube videos to show up in the post? Thanks.

    Thanks for diggin' up that video again. I counted about six to eight deep balls. Out of them maybe three or four he had to adjust to make the catch. So, technically he should be able to do this on the next level. However, for most of the video, he is used more like a slot guy. The second video is how he should be used in our system. It kinda reminds me of the TD against us in the Seahawks game last year.

    I guess what I'm sayin' is......."Come on Troy, hold on to the rock!"

    I agree. And in the interview he said he thought that his skill best fit the WCO so now is his time to prove it.

    After seeing that video I really think last year was a mental breakdown and if he can get his head right we will get our moneys worth out of him. Maybe he need a good woman to bring out his MoJo

    Like you said, that one handed catch on the sideline with a guy on him was nice. Some will say he was lucky and the ball just stuck. However, there were a couple more (catch while two defenders crossed in front and the one that the the safety flashes right in front of him). I really hope that it was just his confidence that he lost last year.
