Dexter's a pretty decent returner, but kinda sucks at CB. We'll see.

I like Wynn and think he is better than Faggins at CB. He is also a very good Special teams player.

I believe it is a knee problem. The video recaping today's training camp, Kubiak said the knee will be scoped.

Is this the Jimmy Williams that at one point was considered a top 5 pick?

Off-hand, I believe he is a DB/SS from Virginia Tech from a few years back, and he if I am correct, he was never considered a top 5 player at his position, let alone top 5 pick.

A quick search on google says he was projected in the top 10. Most of the links are rubbish, but I respect Don Banks and he has him going around 11.

Doesn't matter, he's Jimmy R. Williams, here's a short bio.

Jimmy Ray Williams (born March 10, 1979 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana) is an American football cornerback for the Houston Texans. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He played college football at Vanderbilt.

Williams has also been a member of the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.


[edit] Professional career

Williams was drafted in 2001 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills with the 33rd pick of the 6th round. He signed, however, with the San Francisco 49ers, where he served as a punt returner and cornerback through the 2004 season. Since 2004, he has played for the Seattle Seahawks which included his first Super Bowl appearance in 2005 as his Seahawks lost to the Steelers. On May 19, 2008 he signed with the Houston Texans.
