    If you play a 260 pound DE in the 4i technique, don't expect him to be a run stopper.

    He will play to their strengths. Think they all can rush standing up or hand in the dirt, even DLaw.

    I think Gregory was better than Sam coming out of college. FWIW.

    Dak still doesn't know what Defense the 49ers were running.

    I know Randy was supposedly a top 5 player when he was coming out until he smoked at the combine.

    Randy was also 235lbs ...

    Quinn's not worried about Sam Williams' run defense, and I'm not either.

    Quinn just wants flamethrower speed at RE. Look at the starters he's had. Cliff Avril, Bruce Irvin, Vic Beasley, Takk McKinley, Dante Fowler, Randy Gregory.... I bet you the slowest 40 any of those dudes ran is in the low 4.6s. Quinn's been calling defenses for a decade, and he's never not had elite speed at RE. It's just a core part of his system. All of those Quinn guys were poor run defenders, but if he had a problem with that, he wouldn't keep picking them.

    I don't think Sam Williams is ever going to be a good run defender. He doesn't play with good leverage and he doesn't have the lower-body drive to wrestle with OTs. But in this system, he doesn't have to be a good run defender. He just has to come screaming off the blind side on pass plays, and he's well-equipped to do that.

    Randy Gregory was terrible in run defense, to your point.

    However, Sam will be just fine in run D imo and better than Randy was by far. I believe he is a complete DE.

    I’ve heard that’s where he’s had issues against the run.

    I have no doubt that Williams will easily match Gregory's production, if not beat it in all categories, He was my favorite pick in the draft.

    What are the exact details of his arrest? I realize he wasn't convicted, but I'm unable to locate any details on Google, which is kind of strange.

    The tackles were the highest rated tackles in the draft... They both went before him.


    Did he actually smoke at the combine? Or he just failed his combine UA?

    It's this that bothers me. People keep saying issues like he has had a running history of wrong doing.... HE HASN'T!!! He was charged 1 time by a vindictive girl and the charges were dismissed. People need to stop acting like the Cowboys are drafting a convicted rapist. Man this stuff makes me want to say bad words.

    Agreed. Never said he was a criminal.
    But serious stuff like this is a distraction

    Accused of rape.
    Don't know the details, but I believe the charges were dropped.

    I agree but people need to quit holding it against him like this one incident is who he is. By all accounts he's been a model player, student, father, and person.
