Lions like big Williams as a TE
FoxSports.com's John Czarnecki says the Lions are looking at WRs, which is correct, but he says it's because of concerns of Rogers' future. I don't know if I buy that. The interesting note is that Detroit projects USC WR Mike Williams as a TE.
There apparently is concern in Detroit over the future of WR Charles Rogers (two consecutive seasons ended prematurely due to collarbone injuries) for the Lions to entertain some of the draft's top receivers. However, they are apparently looking at former USC WR Mike Williams as a tight end. Some personnel people believe that Williams will be a 245-250-pound player in the NFL and that he doesn't have the quickness to be a wide receiver.
