20 NFL teams sent representatives to Minneapolis for the University of Minnesota’s Pro Day on Monday. With running back David Cobb sitting out due to a quad strain, all eyes were on tight end Maxx Williams. After a solid 2015 NFL Combine performance, Williams chose only to participate in positional drills at his Pro Day. In a post-workout interview, Williams said his main focus was proving he can get open and catch the ball well.
DB’s Take: Williams is the only real standout in this year’s tight end class. While his Combine performance was pretty average compared to the other TE’s, his size and proven athleticism makes him a potential first round pick. Teams with later picks like the Baltimore Ravens, Seattle Seahawks, and Denver Broncos (should they not re-sign Julius Thomas) are all possible landing spots.
