Nah...he's got the stuff to be a good NT, but with OT, RB/KR, CB, DE being bigger needs, and the fact they'll franchise Franklin, I can't see drafting Williams. What I'd rather see if Singletary wants to use his BPA on DL is to get Odrick. He'd be a lot closer to what both Nolan and Singletary were looking for when they drafted Balmer. He wasn't a one-year wonder...he had a very good career at Penn St. He excelled at the Senior Bowl...I think he has the makings of a formidable LDE for us and would raise the bar on our DL.
I like Dan Williams. I would be just fine if we drafted him with one of our top two picks. Here is the reason why for those of you that feel that NT is not a need. If something happened to Franklin our D would be in deep doo doo. We have nobody on our roster that could fill in if he went down.
