Need an explosive kick returner and a speedster WR? Troy Williamson is our man. This guy will be the next Daunte Hall, man - I guarantee it.

With a guy who could do the 40 at that speed...you gotta take him @ #28.

For all the guys who think he doesn't have the numbers....just look at the 3 guys I mentioned above. Small guys with speed. Would be nice to see him in the next few years with a quick release QB like Rivers throwin at him or Brees throwing down field on a streak....unfreakinbelievable.

The problem as I see it is that if he does what is expected at the combine and personal workouts, he won't be there at #28.

Youre right on that Joe...I saw this kid in the All-Star Rookie Challenge a few weeks back. He finished in record time on all the routes AND caught all the balls that were thrown to him. The last ball was thrown short and he adjusted like a pro and caught on a kneeler.

He was up against the likes of Edwards (who dropped a catch on a cross route). Clayton ws there too and he wasn't that bad either.

If he raises some eyebrows in the Combine - he's good as gone. If he falls @ 12 - I just can't see us passing up on a Blue Chip DE. Thats where we need some skill at.

The WR Corps we have right now is a formiddable one. Adding TW - would be icing on the cake but like you said...he could be gone by #28. : (

I wouldn't mind if he was their at number 28 and we picked him and I also wouldn't mind if we took Kirk Morrison either.

i read the article and it says his negatives are illusivness! how is he like dante hall if he cant get away from people? and if he is a dante hall then he isnt worth 28. dante hall isnt a good reciever and thats what all you people want. we can get a kick returner later in the draft that is just as good as him i bet.

I don't know, he seems ok, but he is not jumping out at me at all.

I like either Clayton or Edwards, not necessarily in that order.

I still have a big concern with Williams, and the article just reinforces that when it says that one of his biggest negatives is being immature. I just have a bad feeling about him.

In all truth, I still don't see receiver as being a huge need, yes depth and development for the future is needed, but we need a SS and DE now. I am not against taking a receiver, but only if A.J. has a solid plan to address the other needs before hand.

Go Bolts!

Oh geeze....does that mean Brees is better than Manning, Culpepper, Vick, and McNabb because he won the QB challenge?

Those competitions at the ProBowl are so meaningless when applied to a real game it's ridiculous--not to mention that the receiver competition relied too heavily on the accuracy of a real QB, not a machine. And if you watched that competition, you would have known that Aaron Brooks' sporadic throws to Edwards and Clayton helped Williamson win that competition. Brooks was all over the place. It wasn't a balanced competition at all because of that.

Besides that, there are other problems with the competition. There's no safety waiting out there to lay the wood to the receiver...no CB there to play bump-and-run, no 70,000 fans screaming and no pressure to make the game-changing reception. It's a parlor game for entertainment--not a scouting tool, IMO.

Well Drew is certainly better than the amazingly overrated vick, but not because he won the comp i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif. Its because unlike vick, Drew actually has more TDs than TOs.

Oh but also.. I don't see Williamson lasting till the #28th pick. We should either take Derrick Johnson or Williamson with our #12 pick (whoever is still there). They are two great players that could really help our team!!

Williamson is too big of a chance for a top 15 pick. He had 43 catches his senior year, and I don't care if it was a run first offense if he was that great they would have gotten him the ball more. He never broke 1000 yards in college.

Derrick Johnson should be our top choice at #12, but he might be gone too. I think with our cap room free agency should address most of our needs.

Williamson is a Junior I believe, not a senior. I agree that he is too risky at 12 because a lot of his stock is based on potential. I dont know that he will make it to the 28th pick either, but if he does it might be a good risk at that spot. If not, we can go for Oline/Dline/FS or maybe Clayton.

I'm on the bangwagon for the 28th pick to be Troy Williamson. He would be a steal if the Chargers take him with the 28th pick.

I really love troy williamson but when I think about it I dont think Brees has the arm to take advantage of a player with his speed. Mike Williams might be a better fit because hes more of a short to intermidate player thats fits brees' game.

All this talk about Brees having a weak arm is a little over blown. Steeler coach in the Pro bowl game said that he was supprised how strong Drews arm actually was. Brees can chuck the ball 50 yrds, we seen him throw it 55 yrds threw the air to Parker in 2004. IMO if we do pick up a speedy WR, Drew will go down field more offten.

Neither did Tim Brown when he won the Heisman his senior year under Ground Lou.

You can also dig up a thread I made about how we should draft Desean Jackson HERE (http://forums.chargers.com/showthread.php?t=50164). I got one reply and it was someone who shut me down. I've also been totally wrong at times..I thought Ko Simpson would be the next Ed Reed.

It just goes to show...Talent evaluation is a tough job. There's no simple formula. I mean some people scout players for their whole adult lives and then draft Ryan Leaf at #2!

But could you imagine for a sec how sick our offense would be with Desean Jackson, Rivers, VJ, Gates, Floyd, Sproles, Etc...? :Beer: lol.

I bet you hadn't even reached High School when this thread was created. Do you even know the first thing about analyzing football?
Anyways, this is just a forum, we don't get paid. Most of us just look at mock drafts and assume he's good because Tony Kornheiser said he is.

HAHA. That's good for a laugh. 4 WHOLE years playing HS football eh?I guess my 9 years playing has nothing on that. I've played in a 34, 46, and 43 so I'm no stranger when it comes to defenses. Also played in a run and gun offense and a double tight winged t.
But I have nothing on your Villa Park High school action.

I don't see the need on spending our 1st round pick on another receiver. We need a NT or a RB. If you want an explosive kick returner, lets get Javier Arenas. He won't cost us our 1st. He's got explosive speed with great elusiveness.
