Larry Fitzgerald impressed with rookie Chad Williams

Grambling rookie Chad Williams gets high praise from legendary teammate Larry Fitzgerald.

Chad Williams hasn’t officially played his first snap as an NFL player, but he’s already receiving praise from an all-time great.

The former Grambling reciever’s new Arizona Cardinals teammate Larry Fitzgerald compared him a former Cardinal: Anquan Boldin.

“Once it touches his hands, it just doesn’t move,” Boldin told reporters via Cardinals’ twitter. “He’s got unbelievably strong hands. He’s got deceptive speed, like when he’s running with guys, you see him and it’s like ‘man he’s moving. Man he’s really moving, getting behind guys.

Boldin played with the Cardinals from 2003 through 2009 before being traded to the Baltimore Ravens. The three-time Pro Bowler was named NFL Offensive Rookie of The Year and currently has 1,076 receptions for 82 touchdowns.

Fitzgerald, a 10-time Pro Bowler, also praised the Baton Rouge’s native’s personality and intangibles.

“I love his confidence, he’s a really outgoing young man,” Fitzgerald said. “He has a really high IQ, which always helps.”

Williams was picked by the Cardinals in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft after a standout career at Grambling.
