Auburn WR Duke Williams has the best quote of the entire Combine

It is hard for a player to admit when they make a mistake and it seems like D’haquille “Duke” Williams the former Auburn wide out understands that he made a few bad decisions that led to him getting dismissed from the Tigers team.

“I’m a first-round pick no matter what,” Williams said Thursday, “but off the field I’m a seventh-round pick. My character is seventh round.”

“I hurt my family, my friends, my teammates, my coaches who gave me chance after chance,” he said. “I regret the fight. (Coach Gus) Malzahn, he gave me chance after chance. It’s not his fault. It’s my fault because I should’ve learned. He took a chance on me. And I hurt the Auburn family by getting dismissed.”

I love what he said, and I hope he is drafted. He get’s it and he is truly a sharp and talented football player.
