    I dunno, I don't expect a whole lot from Williamson this year. He will probably start the season as the 4-5th receiver (if he doesn't hurry to camp I'm leaning towards 5). I don't expect him to play on every down, they will most likely bring him in on obvious passing situations, or design a few plays to highlight his speed.

    Hopefully he will pan out in the future, but for the amount of production the coaches seem to expect to get out of him this year you kind of have to wonder how they rated him as the #1 WR in the draft.
    I see him starting as the 4th receiver because I know he is better than campbell and eventually through the season I can see him working his way past Taylor or Robinson as the 3rd but who knows. We all had questions about Moss before we drafted him. For all we know Williamson could be the next Moss. (please don't yell at me for making comparasins.
    Yeah. Robinson is getting older and that opens up a spot at WR for Williamson. I am concerned about who is going to be a End Zone threat when we lose Robinson. I hope Burleson developes into a great possesion receiver and allows us to play our speedy WR's.
    Burleson should be able to be an end zone threat. Randy was know for his ability to out jump the defenders in the end zone to score for us.

    Nate burleson has a 42 1/2 vertical leap. Moss's was 38. Randy is 6'4 and nate is 6'0. Nate should be able to jump over defenders just like Randy was able to.
    Yes, thats true. but ther is more to being an end zone threat than vertical's sometimes. Robinson has the moves and finds ways to get open, I think hopefully Nate can learn to do the same. Good call on the vertical, i didn't know that.
    Nate doesn't have Moss' body control, also, because Moss' legs are longer, it's easier for him to plant into the jump on fade routes

    also: Nate's CAMPUS agility tests say he had a 37.5 vertical jump, though his combine was 42.5

    does that mean he can get higher then moss if you do the difference in math?
    yeah, a half inch higher.
    Your math is based on the wrong criteria...you have to factor in the arm length of the two as well. Moss's arms are definitely longer than Nate's, so Nate probably can't get his hands higher than Moss, just his feet. That being said, I don't think the inch or two difference will be that significant...Nate will outjump most if not all the CBs in the league if he needs to in the endzone...so we have nothing to worry about! :grin:

    Moss was number three on the depth chart through most of the year behind Carter and Reed.
