I hope people think Adams had such a bad combine that he drops to 19. The dude is a bonafide stud. I've compared his play to Eric Berry, and that's not a comparison I make lightly. Jamal Adams is a a ***damn beast.
Marcus Williams is a finesse player who is more lucky than good. He doesn't jump off the tape. He's just the guy who is there when a quarterback overthrows it very badly or underthrows it very badly. His tackling is so soft it's downright Piscitellian. I wouldnt even want to draft him, truthfully. He is so lacking in physicality it's a bit painful.
Fun fact: in double-checking the spelling of Piscitelli, Google informed me that our draft bust is now a professional wrestler. Huh.
That 2007 draft, though. A bust at defensive end who died too young, a bust at guard who had mental problems, a bust at safety who now wrestles, an underwhelming linebacker who was all sizzle and no steak, another bust at safety who smoked himself out of the league, and a bunch of dudes no one remembers. The highlight of the class was Adam Hayward.
I had high hopes after that draft. Just goes to show you never can tell.
Sorry to derail things a bit.
