Arizona Cardinals' Rookie Chad Williams (Grambling) draws high praise

GLENDALE, Arizona  --  Arizona Cardinals' rookie wide receiver Chad Williams drew a lofty comparison from teammate Larry Fitzgerald.

As far as Arizona Cardinals' wide receivers go, there's Larry Fitzgerald, and then there's everybody else.

Whether you're talking in context of the 2017 roster, or the wide receivers that have played for the Cardinals throughout the franchise's history, Fitzgerald stands out above his peers.

So when Fitzgerald talks, people listen.

On Tuesday, Fitzgerald opened up about rookie wide receiver, Cardinals' third round draft choice Chad Williams, and paid him one of the highest compliments a young receiver can dream of.
According to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, Fitzgerald said, "He (Williams) reminds me of Anquan Boldin in terms of the strength of his hands. Once it touches his hands it just doesn't move. He's got unbelievably strong hands."

While Fitzgerald sits alone atop the Cardinals' record books in career receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, Boldin is also one of the most productive receivers to ever play for the franchise. Boldin and Fitzgerald were teammates in Arizona from 2004-2009, and the pair formed one of the most dominant one-two punches in the league.
