I badly misjudged where he would be taken, but so did Kiper. The further he fell, the better value I felt he was. If taken in the 4th round, I think he would have won the starting spot. I don't think Travardo Williams will.
Maybe next year.
I don't believe Trevardo Williams is being given the starting job or expected to win the starting job. He'll be used just like the 49ers used Aldon Smith his rookie year. (3rd down pass-rushing specialist) (Williams will also compete on ST's, should be fun watching him and Braman race to see who can hit the returner first)
You watch the tape on Trevardo and he could have easily had 18-20 sacks his final year at UConn. Literally 1-2 Milliseconds saw to that. (Only finished with 12.5 but should have had 2 more sacks against Teddy Bridgewater and that Louisville offensive front) With us having Kareem, Joseph, Ed Reed, D.Manning, and even Cushing sitting and waiting in the secondary I can see Trevardo getting that extra millisecond. (Unless Watt gets there before he does)
