Rookie WR Williams Looking to Be Rookie of the Year

The Tribune reports that Mike Williams is thinking big, like rookie of the year big:

Nobody would blame Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Williams for breathing a sigh of relief after seeing his team’s first preseason depth chart. Williams is listed as Tampa Bay’s starting receiver heading into this weekend’s preseason game at Miami. He will play the “X” receiver, who usually lines up on the opposite side of the tight end and stands at the line of scrimmage. Last season, Tampa Bay’s “X” receiver was Antonio Bryant, that player typically draws one-on-one coverage and is expected to make big plays, like New England’s Randy Moss, San Diego’s Vincent Jackson and Miami’s Brandon Marshall.

While that is a huge accomplishment for Williams, a fourth round draft pick out of Syracuse, he is not content. “I’m not satisfied. Even if I was to go out there and be No. 1 on opening day, that’s not my goal,” Williams said. “My goal is to be rookie of the year and help this team. I’ll be satisfied after that and proving all those people wrong about me off the field. “I’m not satisfied with that [depth chart]. That’s just a step toward the right direction.”
