    Not necessarily, Miller averaged 12.1 yards per punt return (412 yards on 34 returns) and 1 TD over his career while Williams averaged 21.9 yards per punt return (482 yards on 22 returns) and 3 TDs. That's a big difference.

    But Williams doesn't have a lot of experience on kickoff returns with only four in his college career, so who knows how he'll do there? Miller was a really good kickoff returner so this is the only big question mark.

    But what you have to remember is that NFL scouts don't rely on the media "analysts" to assess their prospects. They have their own criteria and they watch many of these players first hand and are more focused in their studies of players since multiple scouts are assigned territories as opposed to the draft "analysts" that try to cover the entire country. The point being to give the scouts a little credit for doing their jobs and not relying on the spotty information provided by the media analysts.

    I agree.

    Thank you.

    Justin Miller was staring us in the face, but Shanny CANT go with the obvious, he has to go against the grain every time.... he will pay for it... Darrent will be a career returner/nickel at best where Miller has the ability to star

    He supposedly has great return skills, this one was for special teams. Its funny you figure any football player should excel on special teams, but return skills are hard to come by.

    We need a RB..........? we got 7 of them

    Shannahan's Plan for DARRENT WILLIAMS

    This was a great pick. you see, here's shanny's plan. You take a circular saw, cut 4 inches off of Lenny Walls and attach them to Williams. Its genius!
