Overview

Williams is an extremely talented receiver that could come in and have an immediate impact as a deep threat as well as in the red zone. Conversely he could also be a big-time bust if he comes in with the wrong attitude and is not willing to do the little things to make himself a top level receiver. He is explosive off the line and can use his long legs and stride length to lull opponents to sleep and blow on by them. He has shown the ability to extend and make acrobatic-type catches but will also body catch more passes than you’d like. He was suspended for the 2008 season for academic reasons and then quit the team in November of 2009.

Analysis

Strengths

Tall receiver with a good frame. Long-strider that is explosive off the line with fluid hips. Punches out of press coverage and runs precise underneath routes. Leaps well and is adept at high-pointing the ball which makes him a threat in the red zone. Does not take plays off and is solid blocker. Productive when he is on the field.

Weaknesses

Serious character question marks after missing the 2008 season due to academics and quitting the team in November 2009. Lacks true breakaway speed and struggles to make people miss after the catch. Lets balls get too close and sometimes takes his eye off passes.
