I would take D-Train several rounds before Jerome Williams. Here are some notes I have seen on both.

"Willis had another good outing on Thursday, throwing seven scoreless innings, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. He also gave manager Jack McKeon heart palpitations when he made a head-first slide into home plate to score the Marlins' first run. "The instinct is there," McKeon said. "The guy's got tremendous desire to score. You can't do nothing about it when he does it. ... He creates a lot of energy for everybody because he can do so many things." Willis, who has an outstanding 20/3 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings this spring, could be poised for something of a breakout in 2005. "

"Jerome Williams was having a decent 2004 season prior to his injury. If he remains healthy, 15 wins, 1.275 WHIP and a 4.00 ERA are obtainable. A good number three or four starter on your team who could be had in the later rounds of the draft."

I have both of them pegged to be better than expected this year....but I'll go with D-Train because Jerome's dad is battling a serious illness so he could miss some time during the season if something were to happen (he missed some of ST already).

I hate Dontrelle Willis, I think he's so damn overrated. Williams is the pick here.

Williams, although it may be the Giants bias.

Just finished a draft today, D-Train went #194 and J. Williams went #265 (to me).

I believe Jerome is slated as the fifth starter so they may skip him a few times lowering his value.
