2016 Los Angeles Rams Training Camp: Tru and Tavon Taking Notice of Duke Williams

New, comments

After five drops on the opening day of practice, the Rams WR earned kudos from several prominent Rams players.

Duke Williams was somewhat of a surprise addition to the Los Angeles Rams following his tryout at the team's rookie minicamp. His physical traits have rarely come into question - which likely had a hand in his signing - but 'red flags' about his character caused him to fall completely out of the draft. (More on that in his roster preview if you're interested)

After two practices, he's already garnering some attention at training camp. Trumaine Johnson knows a thing or two about covering WRs, and Williams has jumped out to Tru early in camp.

That's been Williams' calling card throughout his collegiate and brief intro into the NFL: he's a big, explosive athlete. That being said, he had a tough opening day at UC Irvine.

Some fans were questioning why Tru was taking notice. Vincent Bonsignore summed it up about as perfectly as you can.

HE GETS OPEN. That's more than most Rams WRs can say for themselves.

While this is worth taking note of, remember we're only two days into camp. Take everything with a grain of salt at this point. There's a chance the Rams struck gold here, but there is also the chance that this putters out. With luck, Williams will clear it up with his play next weekend.
