Draft Analysis:

Tom Coughlin was rumored to have an interest in implementing a fullback in the Jags offense this season. Williams has a chance to be that guy when they line up in heavy two-back sets. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

To call him a dump truck filled with a load of power would be accurate. Extremely powerful. Set Miami weight room record with 381 pound power clean. Has enough flexibility in his lower body to sink and root out defenders as a lead blocker. Accelerates and explodes into contact as a blocker. Takes a crease and makes it a lane. Makes good reads and chooses his targets wisely. Does an adequate job of staying connected to his blocks. Showed some ability to catch the ball at Mars Hill College before he became a graduate transfer.

Weaknesses

Will need to control his weight on the pro level as he has played much heavier in the past. Has to prove that he has value on special teams as a blocker and potential cover man. Will be a non-factor as a runner or on passing downs.

Bottom Line

After a successful run at Mars Hill College, Williams was a graduate transfer to Miami where he proved to be a throwback lead blocker who created anticipation before his massive blocks. His ability to contribute on special teams will be determined, but even if he is just a lead blocker, he’s good at what he does should make a roster because of it.
