Chat with Bill Williamson

Bill Williamson
  (12:03 PM)

Hi everyone, we're going to 12:30 today.

Brad (STL)

true or false, The Rams will trade for a QB and draft Suh with the 1st pick

Bill Williamson
  (12:03 PM)

False. I think they go Suh and never look back.

Josh (DC)

Why is QB a foregone conclusion for the Skins? Given the quality of OT at pick 4 to pass on Okung seems just stupid.

Bill Williamson
  (12:04 PM)

I covered Shanahan for four years in Denver. He lvoes OLinemen. I could see him taking a LT. His last pick in Denver was LT Ryan Clady and that was a pretty nice choice.

Chris (NE CT)

Hey, Bill. The Patriots have a lot of holes on defense, especially the secondary. Do you think they have any chance of trading up for Eric Berry? Please say yes...

Bill Williamson
  (12:06 PM)

I love Berry. It may take the Pats' top pick and a first-rounder next year. But thanks to Oakland, the Pats' have two choices in 2011.

DJ (Baldwin, WI)

What do you think about the Vikings putting the franchise tag on Chester Taylor to limit his options and to see if they can't get something for him, ala Ted Thompson's franchising and trading guys?

Bill Williamson
  (12:07 PM)

Interesting ... I know San Diego is looking at Taylor as a possible replacement for Tomlnson.

Brian (San Diego)

Which running back do you think would best fit the Chargers system at the end of the first round?

Bill Williamson
  (12:08 PM)

I think they'd cosndier Best in the first round.

Adam (Kansas)

Better fit for the Chiefs, trying to trade for Anquan Boldin or would you go after Vincent Jackson or Malcom Floyd.

Bill Williamson
  (12:09 PM)

Floyd would be cheaper. He'd be interesting in K.C.

Joey D (Redding, CA)

Hey Bill, do really think there's a chance the Raiders trade Nnamdi? And what are the chances they get another high priced free agent?

Bill Williamson
  (12:11 PM)

If the price is right, they couls trade him. But becuase of his contract, He'll be very difficult to trade. Don't expect it.

Randy (Tennessee)

Any chance Denver keeps Marshall but trades Dumervil for Mimi's 1st rounder?

Bill Williamson
  (12:12 PM)

Denver would very much rather trade Marshall than Dumervil. Denver wnats to keep him.

Chris (VA)

what team do you think Michael Vick will end up on?

Bill Williamson
  (12:12 PM)

The feel around the league is St. Louis.

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

would you rather have Haynseworth or Palamalu on you team?

Bill Williamson
  (12:12 PM)

Troy P. without thinking about it.

Mike (Det)

If Suh goes #1, is Det a lock to take Gerald McCoy at #2?

Bill Williamson
  (12:13 PM)

Probably.McCoy is going to be star.

Brad (STL)

which team with a top 5 pick will have the best record next year?

Bill Williamson
  (12:14 PM)

The Chiefs if they can get some help for Cassel on the OL and at WR.

Beau (Gainesville)

Do you see Tebow getting drafted any higher than the 3rd round if he impresses scouts with his "new release" at Florida's Pro day?

Bill Williamson
  (12:16 PM)

Maybe, I think teams are lookings for reasons to take him. People around the league really like him.

Zac (Durham)

Hey Bill, what do you think about the 49ers going secondary with both 1st rnd. picks? Maybe Hayden if he falls to 13 and then Mays or Earl Thomas at 16 or 17?

Bill Williamson
  (12:18 PM)

I think Mayt will go lower

Mark (Denver -CO)

Hey Bill! I've heard rumors that the Lions are looking to trade for Willis McGahee. Any truth to that? I think that Larry Johnson would be the ideal pickup. What are your thoughts on how Detroit should solve their need at RB? Thanks!

Bill Williamson
  (12:19 PM)

Well, I think Larry Johnson may be at the end of the road. The Lions may want to look elsewhere.

Mike (San Diego)

Brandon Siler was excellent in his 1st 10 games as a starter. Imagine how good he'll be when he has a legitimate starting NT in front of him. Will the Bolts draft either Dan Williams or Mt. Cody in the 1st?

Bill Williamson
  (12:20 PM)

You are right, Mike, Siler is very nice. I think Cody could be a real possibility.

Tyler (KC)

Do you think the Chiefs can find anyone to trade down with?

Bill Williamson
  (12:22 PM)

I think the Chiefs should stay at No. 5 and try to find a difference maker.

Richard (Greensboro, NC)

Would McDaniels seriously pursue Cassel again? He already missed out once and now Cassel has a huge contract for a QB who can't throw the ball down field well. Just feel like it would be a mistake to keep pursuing the one who got away.

Bill Williamson
  (12:23 PM)

Well, he prusued him once and altered the course of the franchise as a result. So you never know.

Brett (LA)

The Saints will probably get rid of Mike Bell.... Why are people down here so opposed to giving Tomlinson a shot as a 10-12 carry back to compliment Pierre Thomas?

Bill Williamson
  (12:24 PM)

I rellay think L.T. ends up in New Orleans. I can still help some.


Brandon Siler looks locked into a starting spot for the next decade; who will be the other starting ILB, Cooper or Burnett?

Bill Williamson
  (12:25 PM)

Cooper still has it.

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

good idea for QBs to hold out of combine?

KW (Boston)

Why Suh over McCoy?

Bill Williamson
  (12:26 PM)

No, I don't like it. it seems like guys who don't throw are hiding something.

Bill Williamson
  (12:27 PM)

To answer the Suh-McCoy question: I think Suh may be just a tad more productive. Both players will be solid picks, though.

Nick Myers (Kendallville, Indiana)

Who do you think my Raiders are going to target in the darft? Thanks

Bill Williamson
  (12:28 PM)


Tim (NJ)

I keep hearing about Cromartie being traded, and the Giants keep coming up with Bradshaw as the other piece. Any truth here?

Bill Williamson
  (12:28 PM)

That wouldn't be a terrible deal.

Tom (Philly)

What do you think of Myron Rolle? Would he be a good fit in Philly?

Bill Williamson
  (12:29 PM)

He's a great story. I think he'll fit anywhere. He seems like a guy who will be around for a long time.

Eric (Minnesota)

What do you see as the final conclusion to the favre saga this year?

Bill Williamson
  (12:30 PM)

He'll play again. How could he not come back?

Bill Williamson
  (12:31 PM)

Hey folks, got to get back to the combine. Thanks for the great half hour. Talk to you next week.
