2010 NFL Draft The Tennessee Titans Select Southern California WR Damian Williams

Williams is a highly productive USC alum (1,010 receiving yards last year with rotating freshmen QBs) who looks like a steal at this point in the draft.  ESPN's Scouts Inc. had him listed as the 5th best WR in the draft, and gave him a second round grade. He's a high character guy who coaches have praised as a great worker..

Best of all, he's a crack punt returner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are some highlights from ESPN's scouting profile:

• Thinly built frame but possesses adequate height and solid top-end speed for the position.

• Brings added value as a special team punt returner. Coaches rave about his character and work ethic. A true team player.

• Polished. Smooth working out of stem and easily transitions into breaks running intermediate in and out routes. Tempos routes and does a good job of using head and shoulder fakes.

• Appears quicker than fast on film

• Lacks extra gear to out run defenses when gets a seam

• Fights for extra yardage and shows good awareness for first down marker

• Gives consistent effort as a run blocker and works to stay engaged but can be overpowered by stronger and more physical defenders.

So he's not Albert Haynesworth, but this guy could be a VERY good weapon for Vince and gives us a polished punt return option.  I like it a lot. With all of the CBs that went before our pick, there was no good value there, so that makes this pick even better.
