The Minnesota Vikings drafted Troy Williamson with the seventh overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, and envisioned him being the replacement for the departed Randy Moss (whom they traded that offseason). It didn’t really bother them that Williamson had less than 500 yards receiving in two of the three years he was at the University of South Carolina, even though it should have in retrospect.
Williamson struggled mightily with dropped passes during his three seasons in Minnesota, and was out of the NFL two seasons later. He finished his career with 87 total receptions; by comparison, 13 NFL wide receivers had more receptions than that in this past season alone.
After his NFL career ended, he’s apparently gotten into the restaurant business, opening a Which Wich in Aiken, South Carolina, with plans for a Smoothie King location as well.
