Mario Williams

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; You cannot argue against his measurables. The guy has all the ability in the world to be great. Alonzo Spellman is a good reference. But if you want to talk about "Workout wonderboys", how bout Mike Mamula? The guy was ...

Mamula is a great example too, but I wanted to try and bring out someone people hadn't said already. I just remembered Alonzo for some reason. Dude was a physical freak.

Ha well what I do with every edition of NCAA College Football for XBox is that I edit and name every player over the rating for 90(for importing purposes for Madden), so I can honestly say I knew who Mario Williams was before the hype(i'm now reduced to using video games as analytical tools). He definitely wasn't the best DE in the game and he's ascending a little too high for my tastes. I think Kiwanuka was rated higher than him. I don't think he's worth the second pick in the draft. That being said, if we were to pick him at 2, it wouldn't be the WORST thing we could do.

However the point is moot because this is all just a huge smokescreen. The FO just gave the media some bait about us wanting to pick Williams after the season ended and they ran with it. Why would they reveal who they wanted to take that early?

I totally agree. I'm out here in ACC country and I've NEVER heard of this guy before the combine. I'd rather go with Hawk, D'brick, or even the RB from Minnesota as insurance for McAllister.

The Immortal Mario Williams would be a fine pick. I have no problem with taking him. Steve McNair wasn't anything special when he came out.

um, what? Air McNair was on the verge of setting or breaking NUMEROUS college passing and total yardage records when he came out. Don't sully the man's name by comparing him to Mario Williams. That's an insult.
