The Redskins select Eddie Williams, tight end out of Idaho. I’m hearing reports that the team may plan to list him as a fullback, and also that he’s got something of a chip on his shoulder after dropping in the draft because of a knee injury that ended his season.
Here’s the NFL.com analysis:
Williams looks like a fullback and plays like a wide receiver. His production (54 catches, 687 yards, six touchdowns) and leadership made him the team’s 2008 Most Valuable Player. And his versatility put him on the NFL draft map. Whether it’s at fullback or H-back, the versatility of the first-team All-WAC pick could make him a tough player to keep off someone’s roster next September. Had an arm span of 31 3/4 inches and a hand span of 9 inches at the combine.
