Cardinals | Ryan Williams enters crowded backfield

Arizona Cardinals rookie RB Ryan Williams enters a loaded backfield, as the team already has RBs Beanie Wells, Tim Hightower and LaRod Stephens-Howling. Hightower's contract has expired, however. "I know it's a crowded backfield, but I will do my best to get on the field and help this team win," Williams said.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team did not draft Williams to send a message to the team's other runners, but noted Williams is not a fumbler. Hightower has had fumbling issues. Williams was ranked No. 15 on the team's board, and they went in with the plan to take the best player available.

In regards to Williams' comments about the team telling him they would take him in the second round, Whisenhunt, with a smile, said: "I'm not so sure that's exactly what was said."
