Mackey Award Winner Williams Comes to GB

After spending their fourth round pick on the defensive side of the ball, the Packers went back to the offensive talent well and selected yet another weapon for Aaron Rodgers. The pick was D.J. Williams, Mackey Award winner for the nation's top tight end a year ago. The Arkasas tight end should fit nicely into the Packers offensive scheme, likely used in that hybrid H-back role that we've seen Tom Crabtree occupy last season. He could find himself on the field more often as well if Andrew Quarless continues to struggle with catching the football. He'll make the team, but it'll be interesting to see how much the Packers actually utilize his talents in his first year. No matter what though, the kid was worked hard to get here, and this piece from E:60 shows us just that. Definitely worth watching.
