Source: D.J. Williams met with Steelers, Vikings, Buccaneers and Texans Aaron Wilson

February 28, 2011

Quote:
Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams interviewed with the Minnesota Vikings, Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Williams is a versatile prospect who has drawn comparisons to New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller.

Williams is a fast undersized tight end at 6-foot-2, 236 pounds with sound hands and the ability to separate from defenders.

Although undersized without ideal bulk, he's regarded as a willing, high-effort blocker.

He won the John Mackey award as the nation's top tight end, catching 54 passes for 627 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Williams chose Arkansas over Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and Georgia Tech, catchign 61 passes for 723 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore. As a junior, he caught 42 passes for 411 yards and three touchdowns.

Williams had an extremely rough childhood, overcoming a lot of adversity to get to this point.

His biological father abused Williams, his mother and his two sisters.

And Williams' father is now serving consecutive sentences of 25 years and 27 years in Texas for attempted murder, as well as other convictions.

Default Re: Owen Daniels one step closer to leaving?

I think this passing offense is noticeably better with a healthy Daniels than with Dreessen at his best. I like Dreessen and I think he's serviceable, but there's a serious drop-off from Daniels to Dreessen.

I'd like to think that Garrett Graham was drafted for just this situation and that he could step seamlessly into OD's shoes, but he didn't last year.

With all that said, OD has to realize that his injuries have caused him to miss his first big pay-day. He's not worth what he was worth a couple of years ago. He's got to be a bit more modest in his expectations. (But I don't want to lose him.)

They were good times.

Wish him well unless it's at the Texans expense. I'm sure the Texans won't mind drafting another TE too. Dreesen is a decent player but I'd like to see more of Casey and Graham, Hill too if he can get healthy.

Can't bet that kind of money on a guy with this sort of injury record.

DJ Williams is a good player though. I would be a little ticked with the TE picks but DJ Williams is good.

My thoughts, too. Rep your way if it lets me.

Dreesen is decent. Graham might become something. Hill will play his two or three obligatory games. But I don't foresee James Casey being a force at TE; I like his athleticism when he has the ball, but there's just something there that I can't put my finger on...something that's not clicking with that guy.

We'll snag another TE or two. There's Shockey out there, which will hijack this thread JUST by me mentioning his name. Bank on it.

All in all, I just don't see how we can "Kris Brown" Owen Daniels. Getting Kris Brown'd is when you are done in a place but the nostalgia is too strong, and the guy is brought back for one more try at it. Only this time, I think the money (not a phony competition) will be the trigger for his departure.

Had he not been injured, none of this gets discussed. But cheer up, there'll be TWO more reg season games for our favorite stars to get injured in. Yay.

Default Re: Owen Daniels one step closer to leaving?

Casey is the only other TE on the roster who has hands that are comparable to ODs, so I have to think he's an inferior blocker or he would have gotten much more playing time than he has by now ?

Probably, OD's weakest aspect of play has been his blocking. Casey is still working on his pass routes.

I think you have it backwards.

I remember Casey being a beast blocker on several plays, but having problems with the route running and being in position to catch the passes thrown by Schaub.

Maybe I'm the one who has it mixed up, though. I dunno. I just don't think Casey is ripping it up like I expected him to.

CloakNNNDagger also said he's got problems with running his routes, so you guys may be right about that aspect of his game for all I know ? And maybe he's a better blocker than I realize ? But I'm sure Casey has outstanding hands, I'm confidant about that. I've seen him make a bunch of outstanding catchs, and he drops very few balls.
