Overview

Williams' mentality, size and strength should allow him to become a solid backup guard in the league. Pass blocking technique must improve. Needs to get set quicker, deliver a punch and become more active with his hands. However, he does show the ability to hold up even when initially beat. If he can take better angles, and stay low in the running game, could be an area of strength. Despite these deficiencies, he still flashes the ability to blow defenders off the ball and get out in space while pulling. Plays angry and doesn't stop until the whistle. Seven round / rookie free agent.


Strengths

Williams has good size and power for the next level. Can absorb the bull rush. Gets some movement when drive blocking. Displays the ability to get out on the edge and pull and shows good range in open space. Does a good job recognizing and reacting to the blitz. Has a mean streak.

Weaknesses

Does not have a quick set in pass protection and doesn't use his hands enough. Needs to watch his pad level. Lacks the lateral-quickness to consistently pickup penetrating defensive tackles. Would benefit from improving his routes to second-level targets. Flagged for too many holding penalties.

Grade

3.2
