The Jacksonville Jaguars think Silver Bluff alum Troy Williamson is better than advertised. They acquired the Minnesota Vikings number one pick in 2005 for the relatively low price of a 6th round draft pick this year.

Williamson has struggled in Minnesota since he entered the league out of South Carolina following his junior season. In three years with the Vikings, Williamson, a receiver known for his breakaway speed, gained just over a thousand yards and scored only three touchdowns. He had only 18 catches this past season. The Jaguars think he may still be primed for a breakout year and he will be reunited with Jacksonville assistant coach Mike Tice. Tice was the head coach in Minnesota when Williamson was selected with the 7th overall pick.
