Williams is simply not a draft bust yet. While he struggled to get playing time with the new coaching staff, he appears to have worked his way onto their good side by the end of this season, and had that key grab against the Cowboys for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of week 17. Williams' 6'4" frame makes him a great prospect for a third receiver. There is a huge difference trying to defend against two primary targets (Roy Williams & Mike Furrey) and defending against three. If Mike Williams can start making catches and getting more playing time and other teams play man coverage, one of those three key receivers should have a favorable matchup almost every time. Drafting Williams was far from a mistake, but giving up on him would certainly be a huge one.

sure mike williams would come to life at the end of the season. just like charles rogers did at the end of the 2005 campain. giving mike playing time knowing darn well that the season is over and they have nothing to play for. i hope these two talented recievers find their way in the nfl and land with a team thats going to give them a chance. especially chuck, he needs a miracle.

Mike Williams does not keep his weight down and has problems, i say make him a tight end. Yes I would give a 3rd round pick for Randy Moss. Now that would be great.
