Marcus Williams, the New Orleans Saints' second-round pick this year, developed a nickname growing up that had nothing to do with football.

"If he sees something weird," Utah's defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley said, "he'll say, 'What the duck?'"

So, dating back to at least high school, Williams' friends called him "Duck Boy."

Like this kid. Like his tape too. As always, health is key, but this could be a stronger secondary than Greer, Porter, Harper and Sharper

Man, how many tens of millions have we spent since the '09 season on the free safety position with no return on investment?! Please let this be the one!

I'll be looking closely at his progress vs Obi. I like both but prefered Obi cause I believe his strengths are playing closer to the line and covering tight ends while Williams strength is playing off centerfield (Von Bell job)

Back the Duck up! Imagine a season where we win the turnover war easily. When was the last time that happened?

Well, they can't call him a ball-hawk. Self proclaimed ball-duck?

I think Bell proved to be a better fit at SS than FS. I believe that we just drafted our true deep field ball hawking play maker. I can't wait to see the reports from training camp.
