Man, what's going to keep defenses from smothering Roy Williams constantly? Bradford and Furrey don't exactly seem like world beaters to me.

That is going to be the real question. That and the few times he does break coverage, who is going to get him the ball. Kitna has shown no talent for throwing deep.

Doughnut Mike Williams is the second most talented WR they have, but his work ethic rubs the coaching staff wrong. So he is relagated to the end of the roster waiting for Drummond's yearly injury, Bradford to show why the talent filled Texans let him leave, and Furry to show that it takes more than just knowing the playbook to make an impact. Should all those things occur, Doughnut will still have to hope that Scotty Vines doesn't return to health.

There is simply too much talent in front of the #10 player taken in last year's draft for Doughnut to get on the field.

The lineup and depth chart hasent changed at all this preseason. From the start its been RWilliams and Bradford as the #1 and #2. Furrey and Drummond will be the slot WRs. The other 2 active WRs, MWilliams and Bodiford, will be the primary backups.

The majority of these guys will look really poor to start the season since they are all learning the playbook still. Until they "get it" and are comfortable with knowing EXACTLY where to go on each play, they will be tentative and that hesitation will will be amplified on the field.

This is still a work in progress.
