One option would be to write a few paragraphs on the skills of Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams, whom the Green Bay Packers selected in Saturday's fifth round of the NFL draft.

Here's a better one: Check out this moving profile produced by ESPN's E:60 on Williams' troubled childhood with his abusive and bi-polar father. At age 11, Williams considered suicide when his father handed him a gun to guard their car. The profile includes a jailhouse interview with David Williams, who is serving a 25-year sentence for attempted murder.

Trust me. It's worth 10 minutes of your time.
