The book on P.J. Williams is that the New Orleans Saints may have gotten a steal.

Scouts and analysts around the league pegged Williams as a high second-round pick — perhaps a late first-rounder in a draft deep with cornerbacks. By the time the 78th pick rolled around, Williams was supposed to be long gone.

Disappointment sometimes sets in for a prospect who falls below his expected slot. After every draft, in nearly every NFL city, a rookie vows to make the teams who passed on him pay, no matter the circumstances of his slip.

Williams is not one of those rookies.

“My dream wasn’t to go in the first round,” he said. “My dream was to make it here.”

PJ is 1st round talent. Book it. We received a gift in the 3rd.

It will not surprise me if he becomes the eventual starter in New Orleans. This guy is no "project". I can't wait to see what Dennis Allen does with this kid at the corner position.

If Browner struggles (he had some problems in NE, even got benched in one game) this guy could step up and be a pleasant surprise.

There is going to be some serious competition at all the CB positions. But the nickle will be the most interesting to me.

CB will be an exciting position group to watch this summer!

So wil:
- O line
- LBs
- D line
- Safeties
- WR's
- RB's
- Back up QB's
- Kickers
- TE's....


Damn, I'll bet the water boys are arm wrestling on the sidelines!!
