    From ESPN's Tuesday Morning Quarterback:

    Lesson: Don't Use High Picks on Guys Named Mike Williams:

    In the 2002 draft, Buffalo spent the fourth overall choice on tackle Mike Williams of Texas, who became an embarrassing bust. By 2006, he was OOF, Out of Football. In the 2004 draft, Detroit spent the 10th overall choice on receiver Mike Williams of USC. An embarrassing bust, Williams is now with Oakland. On Sunday, the Raiders trailed Tennessee 13-9 and faced fourth-and-14 on the Titans' 30 with 1:21. Daunte Culpepper put the ball square on Williams' numbers for the first down, and the former high draft pick dropped the ball as if it were a live ferret.

    What a freaking bust, and this guy was suppossed to be a beast.:rolleyes:

    Like Jerry said, the draft is a crapshoot and you have 50/50 chance of busting or hitting gold.

    Ok I hear ya.... but I am asking... what is his deal?

    I have not followed him...

    could a change of scenery with a good team that doesnt have the pressure of him having to be the number one guy....

    Detroit and Oakland are two hells....

    He's a lazy, self-entitled jerk is what he is. He thought was going to get in the NFL a year early and lived off his highlight reel at USC, now he's playing with the big boys and he doesn't have the work ethic to be great, or even good at this level.

    I'm glad Detroit took him before we had a chance. Dude is overweight, slow, and has bad hands. I'd rather have Antonio Bryant, atleast he can make plays.

    He's done. If his old college coach would cut him during the season, he must be really bad.

    The word on him is that he has a major lazy streak. He missed meetings in Detroit, wouldnt go full speed in practice, was the last one to leave the locker room and the first guy to hit the showers, ect....

    How much of this is actually true is anybody's guess, the guy just could have a bad rap.

    What we do know is that 2 teams have now cut a high 1st rounder, usually that does not happen unless the above is actually true...........just saying.

    I was in New York City for the draft when him and Braylon Edwards came out.

    This obnoxious USC fan was behind running his mouth "Mike Williams" this "Mike Williams" that.

    Man I wish I had thats guy's phone number.

    My boy only has 9 TDs this year and his couldn't make it in Detroit and now Oakland.

    Bust.

    I remember saying that Mike Williams should be (before the draft) a 2nd round pick. People blasted me for that talking about how great he was gonna be, blah blah blah.

    Now I feel dumb for thinking he should of gone that high. I imagine the people that thought he should be drafted top 10 must REALLY feel dumb.

    We didn't have the chance, he went to detroit at #10, we drafted at 12 that year I believe.

    He should consider a switch to TE. Too bad TEs have to block people at some point. He could end up being at least be average at TE, maybe even better.

    I got one thing to say to Mike Williams " MOVE TO TIGHT END" your not fast enough to be a NFL reciever. He's 6 foot 5 and 230 pounds. Put 10-15 pounds of muscle on from now until next training camp and we might have another Antonio Gates like metamorphis. I know thats a bad example but I cant think of anyone else right now.
