    take this for what its worth, jeff ireland has spoken to paul on a couple of occasions at practices for the shrine bowl.

    one of his brothers told me paul called and let him know.

    jeff ireland is the one he spoke to.

    asked questions about his family, his brother. the enviroment at fresno state, and questions about football, and what being in the nfl would mean to him.

    i guess these are the kinds of stuff they ask to basically get a feel for the character of a player.

    of course they probably talk to alot of players during the week, and what not. but boy i would love to have paul in dallas. great guy, and has his head on right. not to mention the kid is blzing fast

    heres a little highlight video on paul williams

    I used to laugh every time you would pump up one of your fresno guys back in the day but this guy looks like he could be legit.

    Where do you think he could be had? Definently fill a need in getting younger at that position.

    some people say bottom of the first early 2nd. but he had a down yr. if he has a awsome shrine game and combine he could be there bottom 1st. but i think if he stays status quo, dallas or any team that wanted him could have him bottom 2nd-3rd

    the guy is raw, but he's going to make some team very happy in 1-2 yrs

    I may end up going to the shrine game, but I don't know too many of the players. Thanks for the heads up.

    he's tall and lanky, but he's added size to his frame. he wont be mistaken for calvin johnson but after johnson u probably wont find a more physical wr in this draft.

    he's about 6'2 215 right now

    Well I can't say that I would pleased with a WR in the 1st but late 2nd, early 3rd would definently be worth a look.

    yup, i think dallas needs a WR early this yr. after owens and glenn. u have crayton who will never be more then a 3rd. hurd who must have let his few media admireres get to his head because the guy vanished after that game he started when glenn was injured. and austin? lol no

    wether it be paul or another wr, dallas def needs youth

    Of the players I've read that the Boys have talked to at the Shrine practices, Williams, John Wendling (a big free safety from Wyoming) and Dan Bazuin (the defensive end/linebacker from Central Michigan) are the three who intrigue me the most... all of them look like second or third round prospects at this point...

    I agree on the assessment of our current WR's.

    Though, I have no clue about this Williams guy.

    Well the guy had a heck of a game against San Jose St. anyways


    seems to be great at using his body with good hands and the ability to break the big one. Seems like T.O. style of player.

    I have always hated highlight videos b/c you never see drops, run blocking, or tough catches over the middle.

    The guy has 72 catches for 1,048 yards and 8 TDs in 4 years. With 21 catches for 229 yards and 1 TD i'd say that qualifies as a down year. He has the measurables but he'll have to be lights out from here on out to go early round 2. This is considered the strongest WR draft in years. Most likely a 3rd rounder as of right now. Could be a steal, then again could drop off the face of the earth.

    GBN Draft Report has something about an injury concern when they list him at 11 in their WR rankings. Does anybody know what that would be about?

    For me to judge a player based on a few highlight plays is not right, but he seems like he has big play potential. I've not watched many Fresno St games so how does he block. Perhaps I'm misreading his body language, but his celebrations seem very self-centered instead of team oriented. Maybe he's a good team player, but I only have what I saw on that clip to go by. Much of the competition he faced wasn't top-tier either(yes I know he played USC, and Boise, but those weren't elite defenses either). Anyone have any feedback on what type of person he is? His history?

    kinda reminds of a guy last year some were pumping here on this site...Greg Jennings..who turned out pretty well for GB.
    Don't know a whole lot about Paul but looks like someone we might grab if he's still around late 3rd or 4th round...more likely day 2.

    From NFL Draft Countdown:

    Strengths:
    Terrific athlete...Timed speed is exceptional...Has ideal size with long arms and a solid frame...Great leaper with excellent ball skills and body control...Deep threat who can stretch the field vertically...Hands are adequate...A strong and physical guy who plays big...Elusive and runs well after the catch...Still has a lot of upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Underachiever who doesn't play up to his potential...Needs to become a better route runner...Raw and needs to work on his technique and master the nuances of the position...Will have lapses in concentration and drop some balls...Average as a blocker...He was never very productive and had a terrible senior campaign.

    Notes:

    I watched the video. Here's my observations about Paul Williams ....

    - good hands

    - Big target

    - Fast

    - Does not want to go down when hit (could be costly; could get injured)

    - Plays good college ball agaisnt college secondaries

    I'm not impressed yet. I don't believe he's been matched up properly, like he will be in the NFL. Could go either way.

    yup he had a down yr, but that had more to do with the QB situation this yr in fresno. paul was blessed his first yr starting in 05, he had paul pinegar throwing him the ball. most people thought he would come out of the draft last yr because basically he would be stuck this yr with 2 freshman QB's. and neither of them took control of the passing game. last yr he might have went early 2nd with all his hype after destroying both boise and usc secondarys. but he had promised his mom and dad before they died 18 months ago his dad being the last to pass, that he would stay in school and graduate. he's one of them kids that knows if ur good enough the money will be there.
