Tampa Bay Vipers – WR Daniel Williams
Daniel Williams showed a lot of skills against this staunch Defenders defense. Aaron Murray failed to impress in his debut, throwing two picks and completing less than 50% of his passes, yet Williams was still able to have a big day.
Putting up 123 yards, on six receptions for an average of over 20 yards a carry, shows that Williams can make something happen with little in the way of a quarterback. Williams has a history of making plays, while with Jackson State University, he put up 2,497 yards, across 185 receptions for a total of 19 touchdowns.
At 6’4, 185-plus pounds, he’s a big target with sure hands. That makes him a viable option for short yardage gains, goal-line throws and just being able to bully corners in the run game. Williams can keep pace with the best, but might not be able to beat anyone deep in the NFL all that often, postin ga 4.51 40-yard dash during his pro day.
Williams also has the added benefit of having spent time in Cleveland already, signing with them in 2018 but never making it off the practice squad. Could Williams be a difference-maker in Cleveland? If week 1 is any indication, absolutely, but the odds are that he’d be a reliable backup behind the Browns two Pro Bowl wide receivers. The team needs depth at wide receiver regardless, so if the Browns were to be interested in Williams, then he’d be an interesting addition to the squad.
