The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the market for a wide receiver after allowing Antonio Bryant to walk via free agency. The search for competition and depth at that position led the Bucs to Buffalo, where the team took a closer look at former Syracuse WR Mike Williams.

Former Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams had a strong workout today at the Thurman Thomas sports academy in Buffalo for several NFL teams, a showing expected to boost his draft stock. 

One NFL scout described Williams' performance as  "amazing," per a league source.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds, also turning in a 4.17 short shuttle and a 6.74 three-cone drill.

Per our source, Williams recorded a 36 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 9-10 broad jump and an 11.63 60-yard shuttle.

Baltimore Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler ran the route-running drills.

Among the other teams that attended the workout: the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns and the San Diego Chargers.

PewterReport.com's Take
: Williams was an impressive receiver at Syracuse, hauling in 133 passes for 2,044 yards and 20 touchdwons. However, Williams stunned a lot of people when he quit the Syracuse football team midway through the 2009 season. That's a red flag NFL teams are taking a closer look at this offseason. While talented, Williams' commitment to football is now in question. Still, Williams is a player that could be worth taking a chance on after the first two rounds of the draft, but he could be drafted sooner after his impressive workout on Monday.
