Default Mike Williams?

What are the chances of us getting Mike Williams in the draft?

I thought the Edwards kid from Michigan was considered the top receiver out of the draft.

I happen to think there will be a good chance Edwards is there at 13 but we pass because we need some help on offensive and defensive line.

Yeah, what good is a WR, if you dont have time to throw the ball?

Default Mike Williams

Kiper has Mike Williams going mid round (if he works out as a WR) and has him going to the Texans. He may work out as an H-back/TE from the what Kiper said. That being said, I don't want projects and he's never played TE but he could be an intriguing TE/WR hybrid for us or other teams. Sometimes he could line up at TE, sometimes slot, sometimes outside. But no one knows if he can or ever would learn the nuances of a TE . Ever since his freshman year there has been talk of him possibly becoming an NFL tight end. He'd be a great receiving tight end for us who could stretch the field and cause mismatches w/ smaller CB's and even some LB if he adds 10 pounds. I don't want to pick him that's just where Kiper has him going. Heath Miller would be a good pick at 13 or a good O/D lineman (Derrick Johnson if for some reason he dropped that far )

I find it hard to believe he'd go that early if he does end up a TE. He doesnt have any blocking experience so regardless of how good of hands he has he isnt going to be that great of a TE when he gets drafted.

IMO unless Williams has some really good tryouts, i dont see him going any earlier than #7, Mell Kiper thinks he will fall mid first round and said today that if so would likely go to the texans, however he didnt mention Derrick Johnson in his top 10 either. :: aslo Braylon Edwards has the highest stock out of recievers right now, for the simple fact that Williams has sat out a year and Edwards has played all 4 of his and if a team in the top 10 need a reciever Edwards will prob be the first to go.:: and on Jabar Gaffney, he is more of a possesion reciever, cant really burn you, cant really jump over you, Mike Williams who has a similar combo of speed a height like andre and would free up much more coverage for him. Gaffney could be traded regardless of his amazing 600 yards /sarcasm

I almost hate to say this but Mike Williams deserves to be playing in La La Land (Raiders) & not the Texans. Edwards is far more the complementive WR to AJ. He would be the Texans true #2 & a great pick if he should fall to #13 at least thats my IMO

Braylon Edwards or Derrick Johnson would be awesome for the Texans If either were available at 13 we'd have to take one or Heath Miller. great point beerlover. AJ/Edwards/Gaffney that'd be great and would rival any WR trio in the league. I have liked Edwards better than Williams for quite some time now. Question is who would you rather have Edwards or Johnson? Either would be great but I'll take Johnson, and take a WR in the 2 or 3 rnd.

Here's a question: If these three player where available at #13, which 1 would you take? Williams, Johnson, or Miller?
