Return specialists that can’t catch punts don’t last long in the NFL.
The Lions drafted Derrick Williams in the third round last year, and he looks like a mistake by G.M. Martin Mayhew in an otherwise excellent draft.
MLive’s Tom Kowalski writes that Williams needs a strong training camp or he probably won’t even make the roster in his second season. Williams’ receiving skills aren’t special enough to keep him employed, so he’ll need to show major progress in the return game.
