The next Charles Haley?


I don’t think either of our top two draft picks are remotely special. Could have had Jermaine Johnson and Nakobe Dean for the D. Now we just have two guys who probably won’t come close to earning a second contract. The ‘Boys should have been more agressive moving up to get players they needed.


Thought they would have picked T Jones or Dean who is sliding b/s of some injury problem. Williams does have very good production, and hopefully they vetted his felony arrest which was dropped? Like the production.
