Roy Williams isn't the only rookie who's wondering what could've been this season. Here are three other high draft picks who were hobbled early on:
DeAngelo Hall, CB, Falcons The eighth pick in the draft out of Virginia Tech, Hall missed Atlanta's first six games after a preseason hip injury. He got his first NFL interception on Nov. 28 against the Saints.
Julius Jones,RB, Cowboys The Notre Dame product missed eight of the first nine games with shoulder and rib injuries, but in his last five games Jones (above), a second-round choice, has run for 597 yards and six scores.
Kevin Jones,RB, Lions An ankle injury sidelined the former Virginia Tech star for a game and limited him in two others, but Jones, the 30th pick in the draft, has run for 100 or more yards in three of his last five games.
