In the second round, the Bucs bagged Arrelious Benn. Two rounds later, they reeled in Mike Williams, who ended up being a lemon for the Syracuse orange.
So far in Tampa, Williams has turned past puckers into nods of approval. Per the folks at PewterReport.com, coach Raheem Morris said Sunday that the rookie currently is the top receiver on the team.
“He has been working at the X position with the ones,” Morris said. “He has been out there a lot of the time . . . and
Mike Williams had a dynamic offseason. He has come in and done
everything we have asked. He has been one of the guys that has caught
the ball, stood out and has been standing out since he has been here.”
Whether Williams can hold it together remains to be seen. He ultimately quit the team in college, and he was privately criticized for being “horrible in interviews” at the Scouting Combine, “blaming everyone but himself for his problems at Syracuse.”
