Former NFL scout still believes in Ryan Williams, but does not completely trust him

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

Ryan Williams might not yet be a bust, but the injury factor is a concern

Sure, Arizona Cardinals head coach raved soon after he was hired about running back Ryan Williams, the 2011 second round draft pick that has had his first two NFL seasons end in injury. However, the actions the Cardinals took in the offseason speak louder, saying that they are not going to count on him. They signed Rashard Mendenhall and then selected both Stepfan Taylor and Andre Ellington in the NFL Draft in April.

Many fans have written him off, calling him a bust.

Matt Williamson, a former scout for the Cleveland Browns and currently a scout for ESPN, is kind of in the same boat -- he sees the talent, but would be willing to give him up in a fantasy football dynasty league for a 2014 second round pick. You can tell that he feels conflicted about it.

Here is what he tweeted Thursday:

The first point made by Bloom does make a point. His only failure has been to stay healthy. And his injuries are not the nagging type.

The point Williamson makes about his 2012 tape is telling. He called the 2012 Cards the worst run blocking team...EVER. That actually makes me appreciate the two 100+ yard games by LaRod Stephens-Howling even more.

Which camp are you in? Do you believe that Williams still will show his talent and make an impact in the league? Or with his injuries, are you ready to give him up?
