Arizona Cardinals: Chad Williams Looks Promising
Chad Williams was selected in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Arizona Cardinals
Many Cardinals fans were underwhelmed with the Chad Williams selection in the 3rd round of this past draft. This is mainly due to the fact that no one really knew he was. Many feel we may have reached for him and believe he would’ve been there later on in the draft.
On the contrary, there has been a lot of positive buzz within the organization about this wide out’s progress. Of course we don’t have a lot to judge off of because Williams has been very limited in game play to this point. Furthermore I wouldn’t be surprised to see more game time reps coming this rookies way.

I believe Williams will be getting many more opportunities to prove himself mainly due to the absence of John Brown. Accordingly, Brown can not seem to stay healthy and is in a contract year. Coach Bruce Arians has little patience for reoccurring injuries and honestly its hard to dispute. After all, the name of the game is to be available and reliable.
Chad Williams was active in Arizona’s week 2 match up in Indianapolis. In the game he had a specific deep comeback route in which he caught a 16 year reception on 2nd & 17. It was only one reception, but he did it so effortlessly it’s definitely something to be excited about.
All things considered, Williams looks like he should; a rookie. With Fitz being in the tail end of his career and John Brown’s health, Williams could have the opportunity to be a huge part of this offense going forward. After all, general manager Steve Keim and Arians are known for their 3rd round selections.. I don’t believe Williams will disappoint.
