He doesnt have Character issues people, he's cocky and thinks no one's better and no WR can beat him, he's a Chad Johnson on defense, I'd love to have him with the 16th pick

How did he look when you met him? Did he look as big in person as he does on film?

Based on the interviews he had at the combine, others will disagree with you.

so far the word is that hes cocky plus a jerk. also his psyche exams came back as him being emotionally unstable. all the reason why the guy is continuing to slip.

Some teams just won't take the risk because of those tests. Williams could be another Leaf or he could only be acting this way so he won't go to a losing team.

There's so much wrong about this thread that I don't know where to start.

Williams had a mediocre senior season, he gave up too many big plays - flip on the Georgia Tech tape and see how Calvin Johnson beasted him. He has had off field issues during his time in Blacksburg, although people say he has matured. That however wasn't in evidence when he got lobbed in the last game of his career. He showed up at the Combine, refused to work out and was horrific in interviews, coming across as arrogant and in turns vague about his performances, to the point where he was described as emotionally unstable.

He then put in a relatively mediocre workout at his Pro Day and has done nothing to enamour himself to coaches and GM's. He is a CB/safety tweener, who allows too many plays on him and is aggressive in all the wrong places.

No one does that... especially because of the amount of money he would be giving up.

J-Wil will be a stud though... no doubt. He doesnt have any serious "off the field" problems... he is just a cocky SOB... thats fine with me, because Saban will put him in his place...

and he didnt get burned as often as you make it sound, and if he had a mediocre season he wouldnt be hyped as a top 10 pick for over a year, and the ONLY reason his stats were mediocre is because everyone was afraid to throw it near him i can only imagine what'll happen if opposing teams put a bulls eye on him and not only throw it his way but WANT to throw it his way, he'll be pickn em off all season

he was hyped as a top 10 pick before the season. his stock has steadily dropped since then, since he didn't have the season people expected.

Because teams rarely threw the ball his way

He has been tumbling for a long time. No-one cares about stats. People who do this as a serious business understand what happens when teams don't challenge a player. That has nothing to do with it. Don't take my word for it. This is ESPN:

"The combine is like a job interview," Spielman said. "It's like wearing flip-flops and a T-shirt instead of a jacket and tie. It raises all kinds of questions."

Virginia Tech cornerback Jimmy Williams has been the subject of those kind of questions. He is the second-rated defensive back in the draft, behind Texas safety Michael Huff. Williams has size (6-3, 213 pounds) and speed (4.48), and as a junior he was terrific, making five interceptions. In 2005?

"One interception," said Todd McShay, Scouts Inc.'s director of college football and the NFL draft. "He was lazy and took a lot of unnecessary risks. He comes off as very arrogant."

McShay said Williams has top-10 talent -- Arizona still could take him with the No. 10 pick -- but he could fall into slots 20-25."

Nonsense. The amount of times a ball is thrown his way means absolutely nothing to ANYONE with any sense evaluating the draft. Nothing.

As for Ryan Leaf their is a scientist that does a test for some pro teams he calls this test "Brain Typing" and he did recommend to the Chargers that Leaf would "not" excell and that in his opinion Leaf would more likely fail then suceed.

Some people did see that Ryan Leaf couldnt play, the question is how much stock do you place in such a test?
