NFL Draft 2011: Looking Back at Paul Williams Draft Pick
NFL Draft 2011 Could Be the Chance to Make Up for the Paul Williams Miss
A name that you may or may not recognize as a Titans fan is Paul Williams. He is a former Titan who was picked in the third round four years ago.
He was cut prior to the start of the 2010 season and failed to impress on the Texans practice squad.
AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky recently wrote about Williams as part of his series on players who either were later picks that panned out or guys that were early-round misses. Williams falls into the latter.
“Since the Williams miss, the Titans have spent five more picks on wide receivers. It’s always easy to look at a miss and see players behind him who turned out better. In this instance, Arizona got Steve Breaston in the fifth round as the Titans drafted two more non-contributing receivers after Williams in Chris Davis (fourth round) and Joel Filani (sixth).”
I agree that hindsight is always 20-20 but it’s hard to really kill the Titans for this pick considering the fact that Pro Football Weekly had such positive things to say about him.
“Has everything you desire at the position. Is physically one of the most gifted receivers in the draft and flashed signs of brilliance at the Senior Bowl, but will require a very patient, sympathetic position coach who can improve his confidence.”
