4. Brennan Williams, third round, 2013:
The 2013 draft is a dark cloud for this team, since only three players from that class (DeAndre Hopkins, David Quessenberry and Ryan Griffin) were on the 2015 roster, although Quessenberry was on IR battling Hodgkin’s disease.
One of those that didn’t make it was Brennan Williams, an offensive lineman from North Carolina that was supposed to add depth to an offensive line that was battered and needed bodies. Williams was an honorable mention All-ACC pick in 2012 and had a good body to take in the third round.
But Williams was battered himself, going under the knife for microfracture surgery on his right knee. He couldn’t pass a physical, and Bill O’Brien had no choice but to cut Williams the following offseason.
Williams tried to make the Jaguars’ and Patriots’ rosters, but didn’t last long with either teams. But he’s got a new career today as a professional wrestler, training with Houston’s own Booker T. Brennan is going to try to make it to the WWE’s performance center later this year to see if he can get his big break.
While you admire Brennan trying a new career, his injuries costed a chance for him to be a decent O-lineman and give the offensive line a boost.
