Overview

Williams is a highly-productive, hard-working tight end prospect with outstanding character who was one of the key components of Arkansas' dangerous passing attack over the last few seasons. Doesn't possess adequate NFL tight end height but should be able to fit in nicely as an H-Back. Will make a lot of plays finding open spaces against zone coverage but can be neutralized by athletic safeties or linebackers in man coverage. Is a gritty player willing to make tough catches in traffic. Works really hard and is effective in the running game. Williams should expect to be a mid-round selection.

Analysis

Strengths

Williams was very productive against great competition in the SEC. A smooth, intelligent route-runner, who excels against zone coverage. Has really good hands and consistently catches the ball away from his body. Possesses the toughness and bulk to go over the middle and be productive as a run blocker.

Weaknesses

Does not have the height you look for at the tight end position. Lack of height also limits his red area and jump ball ability. Doesn't explode off the line or possess the deep speed to challenge a defense vertically. Could struggle against tight man-to-man coverage at the next level.
