I think you can take Jesse Williams with your second 2nd rounder after he didn't test at the combine and only repped 225 30 times. With his short arms he needed to have 40 reps. Still a great 3-4 DE prospect, but I think his stocked drops 10-15 slots.
Do you see williams as a DE?
I see him as a NT, that could play both spots in certain packages, or in a pinch.
I like him. I know alot has been made of his face tattos, but i dont care about that. He is from australia, and has tribal backround, so in his culture its just differant and not a big deal. By all accounts he has great character and a solid head on his shoulder. He also is pretty new to football, playing rugby i think when he was younger, so IMO, there is still alot of room to teach more solid fundamentals. He gets alot of push and penatration, but when he gets into the pocket, he lacks the technique and instincts to do much with it. The techniques could be tought, especially with a guy like Tomsula as coach, and the instincts will come with more experiance. I like the kid alot.
I like Lavar Edwards potential as a possible replacment for Cowboy, and a good rotational guy to help keep him fresh. He has alot of potential for development iMO. Though if Gholston fell some, hich he may i wouldnt be opposed to takeing him either.in rounds 4-5.
