Overview

Williams is recovering from a torn MCL suffered during his senior season, but he is a quality run stopper that could be an effective two-down specialist. He is near impossible to move when he gets in good position, as he is very strong and has a thick compact body. He is also a hard worker that never gives up on the play. He can be a very stout run stopper, but he is not athletic or technically refined enough to contribute in the pass rush. Williams is a one dimensional player, but he is human hole plugger and should get picked late.


Strengths

Williams has a low center of gravity and possesses a quick first step. Strong run plugger that can anchor against double teams and flashes a powerful bull rush. High effort kid that relentlessly pursues the ball carrier and is a sound tackler. Has a good attitude and is very coachable.

Weaknesses

Does not have the burst to get after the quarterback or make tackles in the backfield. Lacks the hand technique to consistently shed blocks and does not show effective pass rushing counter moves. Not fluid enough to make plays in space. Has a soft body and a limited frame. Trying to return from a torn MCL in November 2010.

Grade

4.8
