    Re: Troy Williamson Over/Under

    Let's be realistic people... he's got great speed but everyone knows that he's unpolished and way too raw to be an immediate impact.

    I say his first year will be uneventful. A few long gains here and there a la Kelly Campbell.

    He probably won't breakout until 2nd or 3rd year.

    So I say 400yd, 3td.

    Let's hope I'm wrong and that he kicks butt from day one!

    I think you got the right idea. His job will be to go deep so he'll have a high average like 20+ yards per catch. However, teams will be expecting this and will be ready for it.

    If it were that easy then other speedsters like Joey Galloway and Santana Moss will be raking up 3000 yard seasons.

    Re: Troy Williamson Over/Under

    I'll take the under. I'd expect about 650 yards and 3 TD's as absolutely best case scenario. He's raw, plus rookie receivers not named 'Moss' don't have big years. Randy had 1313 yds and 17 TDs as a rookie, but Terrell Owens had 520 yds and 4 TDs, Chad Johnson had 329 yds and 3 TDs, Javon Walker had 319 yds and 1 TD, and all of these guys were first round picks. Even the great Jerry Rice only had 927 yds and 3 TDs. It usually takes recievers at least 3 years to contribute, and with a raw reciever from a running offense like Williamson is, I'd say we'd better expect at least that long.

    What's Williamson like in special teams? Any chance of banging him up in kick returns to break him in?

    Re: Troy Williamson Over/Under

    I've heard he's solid but I don't know if having him return is such a good idea. I am always strongly against any starter returning.

    Like Burleson last year? Who got us our first return for a TD in God knows how long. I think if he is good at it he should play special teams, it helped mewelde and onterrio alot to adjust to the speed of the game and reading blocks.

    The more playing time a rookie gets, the faster he will develop.

    Re: Troy Williamson Over/Under

    wow... you guys have really high expectations... that's dangerous... rookie WRs rarely put up big numbers... i think everyone was spoiled when Moss came in and dominated from day 1... i wouldn't expect the same kind of immediate production from Williamson

    at best he'll have around 600-700 yards and maybe 4 or 5 TDs... that's pretty realistic
