Last season, the Arizona Cardinals used the 38th pick in the draft to bring some more excitement to their backfield when the drafted Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams. Williams had a fantastic Freshman(RS) season at Virginia Tech when he took over for the Injured Darren Evans and amassed a staggering 1,655 yards and 21 TD’s. Williams entered his Junior season with buzz all around him. The Virginia Tech backfield was now filled with more weapons than any other team in the country, and Williams looked to be the center piece with Darren Evans and David Wilson nipping at his heels. But in an early season game against East Carolina University, which I attended, Williams pulled his right hamstring and missed the next 4 games. At the end of the Season, Williams announced that he would forgo his remaining two years of eligibility and enter the NFL draft and NFL fans everywhere began to track his progress. However, injury history and a slower than expected 40 time caused Williams to slip into the 2nd round. Still Cardinals fans were filled with excitement to see the agile back break off some big runs for the red and white. But the injury bug was not quite done with Williams and on August 19th, he ruptured his patella tendon in his right knee, an injury that sidelined him for the season. Now Williams, called “Little Sweetness” because he wears Walter Payton’s #34 and tries to mimic his running style, is looking to rebound and show fans that he is worthy of the 38th pick. In an Interview with NFL.com, Williams has made it clear that he is running and cutting and is well ahead of schedule for his recovery. Williams has made it clear he is ready to rise to the occasion for Cardinal fans and plans to put on a show in 2012. Williams will look to combine with Beanie Wells, and the uber talented WR tandem of Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald, to give QB Kevin “Corn On the” Kolb a weapon set that can rival any in the NFL. We’ll be keeping an eye out for this young star, and at BleepingIdiots, we wish Ryan Williams all the luck, and hope that he does not become another VA-Tech Back to fizzle in the NFL.
