Highlights from Packers tight ends coach Ben McAdoo on fifth-round draft choice D.J. Williams:

*I was surprised he was on the board. Might be due to his size.

*I think he has chance to do everything for us.

*Heís functional as inline blocker.

*We sat down in Indy and had chance to talk. Heís going to fit in well in locker room. Heís strong individual character-wise.

*When you turn tape on, he was one of better players, no matter what game you were watching. He may not have the best measurables, but heís one of best players on field. Extremely effective player in pass game. Has great hands. Coming out of pro style offense and heís a smart kid.

*More good football players you have in room the better youíre going to be. With injuries, you can never have enough good players.

*Players are usually pretty coached up. Most of time they bring things up from their past. He was very forward with talking about his past.

*He has quick first step, good off the move. We have things we can help him with and clean up.

*We evolved where we use tight ends in every slot and every position. Itís best position to coach and play in this league. You have to play multiple different positions.

*He is a confident, natural hands catcher.

*He has ability to play special teams.

*His strength level is adequate. He can get stronger. We need to get him with our strength people. I donít know right now about ideal weight.

*Iím a little more fortunate than some other coaches. heís played a lot, smart and takes coaching well. Canít wait to get him here and get going.

*I think Jermichael Finley is doing fine. I look at his Twitter as much as you do.
