Default From the 4th overall pick to 400 lbs

Redskins taking chance on 400-pound Mike Williams
Mike Williams, once the fourth overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, hasn't been on a football field since 2005 he apparently hasn't missed a meal, either.

Williams is in camp with the Washington Redskins trying to get to 350 pounds so he can rekindle his NFL career, according to the Washington Post.

The best news for Williams is he's "sub now," which is his way of relaying he worked himself below 400 pounds. Williams already has lost 55 pounds. His goal is to enter June's OTAs between 370 to 375, according to the Post.

Head coach Jim Zorn said Williams is not a "fat guy" and is mostly lean body mass. He added that Williams's participation in June's OTAs will not be contingent on weight, although Williams will struggle to play consistently at his current size.

"The thing I saw when we worked him out, he can change directions with 410 pounds pretty well," Zorn said. "My charge to him is being able to do that 70 times a game, 16 games and some playoff games as well. We have to get him down just so we can get that."

A guy who obviously didn't want it bad enough. There are players in every sport that only want it bad if it comes easy. If they have to work at it, not worth it to them.

That was my first thought.

But there was also a Mike Williams offensive tackle that the Bills drafted.

This is who this article is about.

That is still one fat man

Hahaha, good. I was going to say, I remember hearing Mike Williams ate his way out of the league, but this would be ridiculous. 230 to 400 is a pretty damn big jump!

"Mostly" lean body mass...sure he is...50.1% I guess, with the other 49.9% being pure blubber.

I remember thinking Buffalo would have a set OL for years to come, nothing would get past Williams. I looked at him and just drooled. Shows how wrong you can be. Of course I wasn't wrong about Denver's pick that year....that he'd suck....and he did.

That's what I thought until I saw the draft date. A sick part of me wanted to see what a 400 lb receiver would look like.

Lelie didn't suck. You're just pissed we didn't blow our first rounder on the ultra overrated Ed Reed.

There's a guy who works in my office... at least 6'5" and at least 400... comes in with whole pizzas or 5 Big Mac's or 5 phillies for lunch and whatnot... we should give him a shot, too.

Careful what you ask for, Khan. I'm sure that photo of Andre Smith's "sprint" is still floating around here somewhere. You know, the one with his stomach going one way, his chest another, and all of it flopping around every which way?

Gonna have to go find that again, now...
