Wells Says He’s Not Worried About the Drafting of Williams

Arizona stunned everyone on draft day when it selected Virginia Tech RB Ryan Williams with its second-round selection (38th overall). Williams’ arrival comes only two years after the Cards spent a first-round pick on RB Beanie Wells. “I just look at it as more competition,” Wells said. “We didn’t have success in the run game last season. I’m not sure it was all due to the running back position, but I understand why they did this.”

Wells says he’s not concerned by the drafting of Williams. But he also acknowledged that 2011 is important for his value — in Arizona or elsewhere. “I want to prove that I’m one of the elite running backs in this league,” he said. “First and foremost, I want to play in Arizona because they drafted me and believed in me. But you have to keep your options open. If this does mean the end of my time in Arizona, then so be it. I’m going to continue to play football, and I know I’ll have a chance to do that somewhere.”
