The offense will obviously only go as far as third year quarterback Ryan Tannehill will take it
, and we’ve heard time and time again that Tannehill’s athletic style of quarterbacking is the perfect fit for something like this. Williamson is still high on Tannehill because of his talent mobility, and thinks that he could fill the role Nick Foles
did for Philadelphia last year.
“I’m still very much a Tannehill fan, and I think I’m higher on him than most people are across the country,” said Williamson. “I think he has a good feel for the position, I think he has all of the ability in the world, I think his leg will be more utilized than in the previous regime did. We didn’t see a lot of that from Nick Foles
, but we do know the Chip Kelly system stresses a mobile quarterback and I think Tannehill’s athletic enough to pull that off for sure.”
Another major cog in the Kelly system was former Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson
, and Williamson sees a current Dolphins player filling that slot nicely. Primed for a bounce back season in the same vein as Jackson was last year, receiver Mike Wallace may be the man
to showcase his skills the brightest in this type of scheme.
“I look at Mike Wallace and think he’s DeSean Jackson, and an improved line should help him as well,” said Williamson. “I think he’s somebody that has gone under the radar quite a bit and could have a bounce back season in this system if the line is better and they can actually throw deep and use his skills. So I think the offense will be improved.”
