    Interesting take on Williamson

    Ironically, most of the things that had him labelled as a 'raw' prospect have developed to the point where they're tough to find fault in now:

    Quote:
    Negatives: Will position block to seal off, but lacks aggression and is not the type who will use his strength to shock and control the defender … Has very good speed, but is a bit of a long strider rather than a receiver that has short quick feet … Not as quick in short routes as the smaller receivers and is best when having space to operate … Can come back for the ball, but does not show great stop-and-go action (momentum sometimes takes him out of the play, as he overruns the ball) … Sometimes takes soft angles, especially on upfield routes.

    Now as a Viking Williamson looks the perfect WR when he runs his routes, they're usually crisp, he shows short area explosiveness, gains separation on all his routes, shows great stop-and-go actions etc, but there's one nagging problem - he can't catch the gol 'darnit ball!?
    If Williamson ever does find the ability to catch the ball, he already has everything he needs to be a legit threat at WR in the NFL. Williamson showed last year the ability to consistantly beat DBs deep down the field. He dropped wide open bombs vs Washington (Carlos Rogers) and Green Bay (Al Harris and Safety help). Williamson learns how to catch and those balls are 7 points a piece. He's developed his route running, and learnt the position to the point that he's a hell of a weapon if this Nike treatment works out.

    Why can't anybody spell defense correct there?
    Otherwise nice compilations of everything we have been reading here the past few months.


    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.

    Exactly, we already know he could be good if he could catch.

    It's a site based in England...that's why!

    They also mix up there z's and s's...and use other weird terms to describe stuff...like 'boot' for 'trunk' (of a car), etc.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
