BIO: Led the team in all receiving categories as a junior with 89/1,109/8. Set school records for receptions and receiving yards as a sophomore totaling 94/1,454/11. Set conference records for receptions and receiving yard records with 55/973/3. Pac-10 co-freshman of the year in 2001 and an all-conference choice the past two years.
POSITIVES: Big, reliable receiver with a well-rounded game. Reads the defense, finds the open spot on the field then extends to catch the pass away from his frame. Gets vertical, adjusts to the errant throw and high-points the ball, making the difficult reception in traffic. Strong running after the reception, breaks tackles and picks up a lot of yardage. Relatively sharp route runner for a big pass-catcher and stays low on exit, getting separation from defenders. Uses his large frame to shield opponents, looks the pass in and remains focused throughout the play. Confident and plays that way.
NEGATIVES: Not a sudden or explosive player and has more built-up speed than immediate acceleration. Slow releasing off the line of scrimmage. Could turn up the intensity as a blocker.
ANALYSIS: A dynamic receiver that opens up a lot of other avenues for the offense, Williams has been productive and on top of his game since arriving at Washington. Has the physical skills and strength to make a seamless transition into the NFL and should immediately produce.
