NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly believes Clemson WR Mike Williams will a better pro than the Houston Texans' DeAndre Hopkins.
"Watching the two of them coming out of college, off tape, to me, Williams has better separation, the ability to beat a defender one-on-one when he has to, inside and outside on cuts," Casserly said. Obviously this is quite a statement, as Hopkins has averaged more than 1,100 yards per year over four NFL seasons. Williams (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) clocked 40-yard dashes of 4.58 and 4.56 seconds at the Tigers' pro day on Thursday. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock called Williams "a first-round pick all day long," at the workout. There was one issue, though. "A little disappointing to me was his 10 (yard split) time, only 1.65. Laquon Treadwell of the Minnesota Vikings had the same time, that's scary," Casserly said. "He hasn't done shuttle drills. Why not? Maybe he doesn't think he does them well, and his change of direction may not be quite what we think it is. (I) love him on tape, though."
