Corey Williams had four sacks last year, dont see how this will improve the pass rush. It is a low draft pick there giving up, so I suppose this aint to bad. Rumor is there also looking at Kyle Vanden Bosch, who also is not known for rushing the passer.
He had like no playing time, got in at the end of the year and looked great... This is a steal for the Lions.
As much as I want a franchise LT ... I want a dominant defense ... Give me Berry, Morgan(yes, Morgan), McCoy, or Suh!!!!
Also -- Corey Williams is a terrific DT in the 43 defense... Adding KVB will also help our defense in more ways then rushing the passer ... he's strong against the run and when he does get a 1v1, he can win that battle(I think he was singled out a lot more with Haynesworth gone, plus - he battles injuries all season long) ... Put Suh, Sammie Lee Hill, and Williams all at the DT position and add KVB, we could generate some sort of pass rush ...
Still wish we'd have pursued Aaron Kampman, though :(
I think McCoy is still in the picture. If you like McCoy better you don't not draft him because you have Corey Williams. I think it's Suh, McCoy, or Okung right now in the discussion. Paying a safety #2 money doesn't seem likely.
Williams had 14 sacks in his last two seasons in the 4-3 defense. He still managed 4 sacks last year despite playing out of position in the 3-4. Seeing as all of the Lions defensive tackles combined for 4 sacks last year, I don't see a downside to this move.
Late in the year last year the Browns put Williams back at DT and let him attack instead of playing gap control and he played really well. He didn't play bad at 5 technique last year either, but he's not a good fit there with how he likes to play. He destroyed against the Steelers on that Thursday night game.
