7. Troy Williamson, WR, Minnesota Vikings
It’s amazing how speed seduces NFL teams. After playing his college ball at South Carolina, Williamson ran a 4.32 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, which made the Vikings think he could replace Randy Moss. In fact, they drafted him with the pick they got from the Raiders when they traded Moss.
But Williamson never caught on in the NFL (literally). He had trouble with dropped passes, claiming that it was due to his bad depth perception. After three seasons in Minnesota, the Vikings traded Williamson after he said he wanted to “duke it out” with head coach Brad Childress. Following two equally lackluster seasons with the Jaguars, Williamson was out of the NFL after five seasons and just four touchdowns.
