I'm actually not sure i'd rate Williams as an A grader. He has his A grader moments bu he's not consistently at that level.I'm pretty simple in looking at where we should target - it isnt as much 'where' it is 'what' for me.
Down back we've got Weitering
In the middle we have Cripps and Walsh
Up front we have Harry and (hopefully) Charlie
Everyone else is a 'role' player based on current form - and some are 'just' potential role players.
We need 2-3 more A graders to hit the magic required 8 of this type number. We have never been anywhere near that in 20 years.
So yeah - Williams would be an absolute great get- ticks the A grader box.
Also ( as an aside) I would be looking at big Joe Daniher - for the ultimate middle finger up to Essendon - my favourite non-Carlton player and he would look great wearing the ODNB
I wouldn't say he's a star of the competition and he's probably not even in the top handful of half backs, and if we're planning on playing him in the midfield, then he probably wouldn't be in the top 50 mids.
He's a good, solid player who fills a need of ours - a player who can play half back and midfield who has some line-breaking speed.
