Duke Williams- can he make the team?

Recommended Posts

In modern day NFL short area quickness is more important than size for a WR.  Williams is the longest of long shots.  Sills seems to have a leg up on him for the tall catch radius guy.  Pre season could change things but the look of the passing game last lends me to believe speed and quickness is king.

I think people are just making excuses hoping for something good to happen with him. Good WRs can still get open and make plays even without pads.

Is there a knock on Duke being able to get open? I don't believe that is an issue. And while he is big, and physical, I don't believe the term "lumbering," which some have used, is accurate, either.

Just wondering why you think Sill has a leg up on him.  (not saying you're wrong.)  I haven't heard many positive TC reports about Sills.

Seen nothing, heard nothing.  The whole story of everyone in the organization talking him into signing with them post draft makes me believe they are high on him.

Better Odds??

 

1. This guy making the team. 

2. Glass Goodwin making the olympics.

They hyped it up a little more for the embedded series. I think if they thought as highly as everyone thinks we seem to be on him we would have used our last draft pick on him rather than a second te. I think Sills is in the running like every other wr on the bottom of the roster for that spot but I highly highly doubt he has a heads up over Williams or any of the other guys. Honestly I think Williams and Sills are on the outside looking in right now. This is due to Ray Ray showing up much improved over the offseason and Cam Phillips seems like he is having a decent training camp so far from what I've read.
