Just for comparison sake, I thought I'd chart up a comparison of how Mario Williams is comparing to the rest of his rookie class. not only was he the top rated defensive prospect, but he was the #1 overall choice much to the dismay of fans of VY and RB. So here are the stats: I only posted the stats of all the DEs through the 2nd round, and then includued some notables later on. A lot of the other 3rd-7th rounders aren't playing enough to count. Mario Williams, DE Texans - 1st round 1st pick 27 solo tackles, 9 assisted tackles, 4.5 sacks, 0 ff, 0 ints Kamerion Wimbley, DE Browns - 1st round 13th pick 34 solo tackles, 14 assisted tackles, 7.5 sacks, 0 ff, 0 ints (starting as an OLB this year) Tamba Hali, DE Chiefs - 1st round 20th pick 38 solo tackles, 14 assisted tackles, 5.0 sacks, 5 ff, 0 ints (starting at DE this year) Mathias Kiwanuke, DE Giants - 1st round 32nd pick 28 solo tackles, 6 assisted tackles, 4.0 sacks, 2 ff, 2 ints (started as a backup DE this year) Darryl Tapp, DE Seahawks - 2nd round 31st pick 12 solo tackles, 3 assisted tackles, 3.0 sacks, 1 ff, 1 int (backs up G. Wistron this year at DE) Elvis Dumervil, DE Broncos - 4th round, 29th pick 11 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 7.0 sacks, 0 ff, 0 int (backs up Ekuban at DE, only played in 10 games) Mark Anderson, DE Bears - 5th round, 27th pick 17 solo tackles, 5 assisted tackles, 8.0 sacks, 3 ff, 0 int (backs up Alex Brown at DE this year) So hows that look to you guys? Not only is he by far the least productive in the first round, but there are 4th and 5th round backup rookie DEs who are out producing him, at least in the sack department. I keep hearing that DEs take time to develop, but these guys sure don't seem to need it. For a 1st overall choice, he's got a lot of catching up to do.
