    he might not be the ideal o-lineman for our scheme but i think he's better than any of our lineman and would be a huge upgrade and he was just cut so maybe we can get him and bring him back to texas

    This is great news for the Texans.......He is a huge upgrade compared to whatever rotating left tackle that we have....

    A good friend of mine is a big Bills fan and I heard him constantly gripe about how disappointing Williams has been. Said he seems to run block ok but does a lousy job at pass protection. I don't know personally, since I've not really watched the guy, but just thought I'd pass along an observation from a Buffalo fan who follows his team religiously.

    the guy has been a bust since coming out of texas...i don't want him anywhere near our team...i think he's just a big lazy lineman who can't pass protect and we got enough of those guys here

    The guy is a #4 overall pick who couldn't beat out a 3rd rounder who was released (mid-season) by his drafting team for the LT spot and ended up the season as the back-up LG. We could get him and Victor Riley and have two 1st rounders at tackle--that would have to give DC a warm and fuzzy, either that or a black and bruised.

    one post on the bills MB showed the 2002 draft.. and Carr was #1 and Williams was #4... hmmmmm so much for a theory of going ugly early on that year.

    and people here would probably had a fit if we had picked Roy Williams that year (at that time) .. just shows ya.. gotta do your homework (Williams went #8)

    This guy would most definitely NOT fit into a zone-blocking scheme at about 6-6 370. I think that if we weren't going with one he would be a great find at RT as an excellent run blocker/mauler type (but it wouldn't have worked out with Wade here as well). He could be a good tackle still, just not for us.

    As for the 2002 draft, I believe that both Bryant McKinney (#7) and Levi Jones (#10) have developed into very good left tackles for their respective organizations.

    Infantry,
    I could be wrong, but didn't they draft him to be a Right Tackle? I have to look it up, but I could be wrong.

    I somewhat remember Bryant McKinny was the best LT Prospect and Williams was the best Right Tackle prospect.

    How about the receiver! I am sure he can block better than anyone on the line now.

    I may be wrong as well, but I believe he was drafted to be the LT (rarely are RT's drafted #4) and then was moved to RT, has been moderate to good at run blocking but bad at pass protection and now is at LG as a backup. Anyway you cut it, he was the top T and is a bust.

    Leonard Davis was from the year before.

    For the Bills, he was a good run blocker and poor pass-blocker. The Bills haven't exactly been good at pass-protection and did have Drew "Take a Sack" Bledsoe as their QB for 3 of William's 4 years. I think he could become a decent RT if he got into the right situation.

    From evrything I am reading, this guy is a clone of the kind of OL players we already have. I think Capers would have liked this guy, but Kubiak probably won't. We need a legitimate pass-blocking LT, as well as a fast pulling gaurd. Do we have either of these yet?

    True I don't think this guy comes here. I don't know who will pick him up, but someone will give him a chance.

    I think we take too many guys expecting them to play better for us than they did for <team X>. I would like us to step up and actually sign someone that even the best of critics would have a difficult time condemning. Mike Williams clearly isn't a guy I want. I hope the best for him though.
