Another Reason Williams Won't Be a Dolphin

But ESPN's K.C. Joyner, who graded Williams' 2009 work, said that though his ``upside is tremendous,'' he's inconsistent and won only one of 17 point-of-attack run blocks he faced versus UF and Auburn. Picking Williams 12th is ``way too high -- he wasn't a dominant player,'' said Sporting News analyst/ex-Browns scout Russ Lande.

Sorry, every FanShot I've posted gets ignored, and I think this is interesting enough to be of note. It defends my position in my latest post (read: novel) about where we will go with the 12th pick, and confirms some of the rumblings going around that Williams is a touch overrated.

Please, Buffalo, go ahead and reach for the guy. We'd love for you to do so. One out of 17 PoA run blocks? That's not going to cut it. I'm sure the Trifecta have taken note of this, and anybody having NT as our pick at 12 (I'm looking at you, Mel Dinosaur, Jr. and Todd McDumb) can scratch that off. There's no way a 3-4 team who does their homework on every available player takes a two-down guy who isn't any more dominant than a combination of Paul Soliai and eight games of Jason Ferguson. We face some good centers and there are some fine running attacks in this league. We pride ourselves on running down your throat and defending the run until you hit a wall.

There's just no way.
