That's kinda my point. We had a great draft. No doubt about it. How Williams compares to Young and Bush in the long run is only part of it. We will remember the 2006 draft as a big part of what got us going in the right direction.
I didn't want Williams #1 either, but I always did see him as a top 5 pick. So, even if he doesn't give us more than Bush or Young would've, he will probably do much, much more than we've seen so far. Furthermore, that draft throws in Ryans, Spencer, Winston, Daniels, and Lundy. The future is getting bright.
