... and the variance may be even greater when it comes to what fans think. All I'm saying is for a fan on the boards to call another fan crazy because they are holding out hope that a guy like Williams falls to us ... when a fair number of analysts are predicting it ... is a little condescending.
On TEN...I do think you have a good point. I see it as a possibility that Williams goes 5, but it would probably be safer to mock one of the safeties to them (which IMO would be Hooker, as I think that Adams is going #2). I don't view Ross in the same category as Williams or Davis, because he's a different kind of player and also comes with injury risk. While what is contained in the link below could be smoke screen, I tend to think it is real:
I think TEN could be one of the teams that would not view him as a desirable option and the likelihood that Davis or Williams would be there at 18 is low. To me - if they pick safety at 5, they will need to get their WR option later in the draft and would not use 18 to do it. Personally, I hope someone takes him ahead of us or that TEN stays away from WR, because I don't think he's the guy we need.
What I also think is a distinct possibility is that TEN ends up trading out of their #5 pick if someone is really interested in jumping the Jets for a QB. If they fall back to 10 or 12, that will garner a lot of draft capital for TEN and picking Williams there would make sense. Of course, they may be passing on a generational type player at safety ... but that's the stakes in the draft and no one has a crystal ball.
