That guy is a beast. You would think that his athleticism would be through the roof if he was recruited to play in Oregon's offense. Maybe the only thing holding him back is between the ears? If that's true he would be a really strong candidate for breakout player this year.

 

Thought OP said he got injured

i think a large part of it was the amount of time he took off to recover from pretty serious injuries.

 

kind of restating and expounding on the OP...

he only played 2 games at oregon before getting hurt, but that was after 2 years at a junior college. he got hurt in 2011 and the only thing he had done since then before we picked him up was playing basketball in 2012 at portland bible college. he was what you'd call rusty and didn't really come with a whole lot of experience.

 

in high school he played basketball and didn't play football until his senior year and he played defensive end.

 

so in addition to being rusty, he was very raw as a player when he got here as well. he's the very definition of and pretty much the ideal prospect, imo.

 

i don't know what kind of catch radius he has, but i remember reading an article about him where he was asked how high he can jump and he said he had a picture and pulled out his phone and showed a pic of him dunking and his elbow was even with the rim.

 

the dude fits the prototype of the modern pass catching TE.

Great background; thanks. He obviously has the physical tools. It'll come down to his desire, work ethic, and ability to grasp the offense. I try not to get excited about unproven guys but he's definitely one of the more promising on the team in recent memory.

I found him to be a really bright guy from talking to him. I don't see how there could be a problem "between the ears"

Guys calves are twigs. Guy is a puss.


If he can block that's something very important and is such a perk. He is Vernon Davis Esq. But if he is being used as a lead back, hell yeah

I'll give you the interior blockers. But Stewart hasn't played meaningful minutes in a long time due to injury, D-Will is getting older, and Chandler and Bell are still questionable blockers at best right now. Only sure thing is Tolbert, but he's no home run threat. Didn't say they'd be awful just that I'm more comfortable in the pass catchers.

 

Stew played in 6 games last year, all towards the end of the season.

Hard work pays off. He has a lot of work ahead of him and will have a tough time beating out Olsen and Dickson for a TE spot but could defiantly make a roster spot if he can play special teams and can block. I know there are a bunch of huddlers that have high hopes for the kid and since he is taking snaps with 1st team offense his time might come very soon. Add the fact that we are going to have more 2 TE sets means more chances Williams will be on the field. I honestly would rather have a good blocking TE as our #3. If Williams can make it as our #2 TE then we could cut Dickson and keep a blocking TE like McNeil.
