Naturally, under the bandwagon-happy microscope of preseason couch analysts and players alike, he's already drawing comparisons to the all-time greats.
"He's big, he's big-bodied," veteran offensive lineman Willie Colon said. "He's so young, he doesn't realize the potential he actually has. He has that Richard Seymour-type body, that prototype [body], and sky's the limit for the kid."
To Colon's credit, Williams and Seymour have very similar builds -- they both stand above 6-foot-5 and weigh just over 300 pounds on the defensive line. But if having a big body was the only metric needed to predict a Hall of Fame career, we could enshrine Williams by Wednesday.
And Williams knows that.
"I know preseason doesn't really count, and also it was like a wide-open," Williams said. "I think it was a missed assignment on their part. But it still felt great."
