“Chiefs RBs coach expects 'big jump' for Williams https://t.co/rZkdqHqzvo”
@Warriors86 you're correct, running backs careers end much much faster than WR or QB careers.
Andy Reid doesn’t really seem to like Damien Williams. He trashed him in the news when he was injured, brought in Carlos Hyde and lesean McCoy last offseason and even tried to use Darwin Thompson even though he clearly was not ready for the nfl
Yes I know that but I’m thinking the league has finally smartened up to the fact that it’s smarter to just bring in new rb every couple years then using high draft capital on a rb. So now a late 1st early second is high draft capital on rb
He could pop right away I’m just not willing to risk it in the 2nd round. Maybe late 3rd but he won’t make it that far and I’m fine with that lol but we’ll find out soon enough. Can’t wait for football
And the comparisons to Darwin thompson are terrible. He was picked in the 6th round and was not a standout in college. Ceh was the best pass catcher of the top 5 rb this year and he went to the team who has the best passing game
@Warriors86 darwin thompson was drafted in the 6th round of the draft & 17th RB in the draft, idk why the heck people were excited or expected anything out of that guy.
It was because this offense is so prolific but I agree he was only with a final round dart throw at the most last year
Damien Williams has looked amazing in this offense and he was never much before he had a starting role.
When he was on the dolphins no one was very concerned about him
If Kareem hunt didn’t beat up a girl he would be irrelevant
@Warriors86 I wouldn't go as far as to say "amazing" he has had his moments here and there but for some reason the playoffs the past 2 years is where damien williams has really shined.
kareem hunt is AMAZING!
All I’m saying is ceh is a far better athlete, running back and he’s younger so he should hold up better. Plus mahomes picked him Andy Reid compared him to Westbrook and joe burrow said he was his favourite player. This kids a star and Damien Williams is not going to be the one to hold him back
@Warriors86 so you drafting him in the 1st round then?
He's only 5'7 207 so do we actually think he can hold a full workload in the NFL?
Williams will be a thorn in his side all year barring injury
Mahomes draft pick may only be 5'7 but watch him do work I mean MJD balled out at that size !
@Sleeeeepy no because there is better value in the first round but if got a high pick let’s say top 4 I would definitely think about him late 2nd and follow up with another rb in the 3rd
Have you ever seen a 5’7 person. 207 pounds makes that guy a little brute. I’m 6’1 220 pounds to think I only have 13 pounds on a 5’7 guy
Could be a kamara rookie year type production on that explosive offense
Could not be
Not worth the risk for me
When a all star qb gets asked who he wants the 1st round pick to be and its not a wide or tight end .. gotta be worth noting :)
