I think he can get open on routes and a good quarterback with great decision making and accuracy will be able to get him the football. But I don't know that I see him being a play maker at the next level.
I think I would rather have Williams because of character. Not that Hopkins character is in question, but Willams seems to be well grounded like his head wont get big if he makes it big. he fits the mental makeup. henceforth the article.

I'm not a fan of Williams. I recognize that many evaluators love the kid and that he is both big and fast. But when I watch him I see a guy who has trouble getting off the line with press coverage, poor use of hands against defenders (he loses hand-fighting), hesitency over the middle, and difficulty in traffic. He just seems to have a world of problems with physical corners and seems to be scared of big hitters. I could be totally off with this assessment ... but when the speed and ferocity gets ramped up a notch in the NFL, he may be another Ted Ginn, Jr. with less speed.
Williams doesn't strike me as someone who just lacks muscle development becasue he's young. He seems to have the bulk, but just doesn't have the strength or will. Physically, I see him being the opposite of a Terrell Owens or Michael Irvin type of big physical dominator ... I see Terrance Williams losing every physical encounter. If you let him go free, he's got speed to burn, so he'll make his share of plays, but I think he'll be the guy who disappears for long stretches in many games.
I'm just wondering what tape there is out there of Williams being so bad at dealing with press. Can anyone point to anything specific?
Idk I took some time to look at both Williams and Hopkins and I still see Hopkins as the better playmaker. And Williams is only an inch or two taller and afew lbs heavier. As far as the deepthreat thing, I saw Hopkins catch as many if not more bombs than Williams did. I also saw the Senior Bowl and only saw Williams catch a couple balls and go out of bounds. Can you provide me a link of anything that can impress me because I'm just not convinced Williams to go higher than Hopkins. (Of course here's to is grabbing Patterson at 12 so we don't have to worry about either one he he he)
And what about this Da'Rick Rogers guy? The guy looks like he belongs in the conversation of WRs right after Patterson.
