  1. As soon as I saw the Ravens double dip at TE in this year's draft, I immeditately thought... "Wait. What about Maxx Williams? 2015 second-round pick..." It then hit me that I would be very surprised if Williams makes it through training camp. Williams came out of Minnesota in 2015 and was highly-coveted as the top prospect at the position. A lot of people on here (myself included) were very interested in bringing his talent to Atlanta. *Williams has a really good catch radius. He reminds me of Kyle Rudolph; a great athlete with big hands." -- Mike Mayock. Lance Zuirlein compared him to Jeremy Shockey. Williams was a top performer in the combine in the 40 and vertical jump - and was drafted to be the next Dennis Pitta for the Ravens offense. Williams led all college tight ends with 9 explosive catches (25-plus yards) in 2014 with the Gophers. Let's just say things didn't go as planned. After a strong end to his rookie year, Williams was placed on IR with a knee injury in Week 4 of the 2016-17 season and hasn't been the same since. For those who don't know, it's widely believed that the TE position is one of the most difficult for prospects as they move from the collegiate level to the NFL. Williams is not an exception from this belief. WR Breshad Perriman is the one who gets all of the buzz for being a mega bust up to this point, but Williams is right behind him. Williams has just 47 catches in 29 games in his first three years. Assuming Hurst and Andrews show some level of promise, I don't see Williams around as he sits behind Nick Boyle, Hayden Hurst, and probably Mark Andrews. With a high likelihood of Williams being cut in the next few months, this is a player who I would take a shot on in a heartbeat as a vertical passing threat with some upside at a cheap price. I'm not saying I don't like Hooper, but we need a true red zone threat who can find openings down the middle of the field on seam routes. For you PFF buffs - Despite his limited production, PFF gave Williams a 70.6 rating (average) for 2017. Hooper had a grade of 61.9 last season. I hope we pull the trigger if he hits the market. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Source - The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec believes Ravens TE Maxx Williams is on the roster bubble.
