BIO: Two-year starter who posted 128/21/11 as a senior after 92/6/1 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Explosive linebacker slowly turning into a complete defender. Quick in all aspects of his game, forceful on the blitz yet displays great range with the ability to make plays in space. Fast to the flanks, gets depth on pass drops and plays with balance. Immediately alters his angle of attack, wedges between blocks and gets to the action. Adequate skills over pass-catchers in the slot.
NEGATIVES: Slow to shed once engaged at the point. Not instinctive or quick to react in pass coverage.
ANALYSIS: A linebacker prospect that makes a lot of athletic plays on the field, Williams has displayed a steady path of progression the past two years. Mainly used up in the box at Nebraska, must learn to consistently make good decisions in space but offers the underlying skills to eventually start for an NFL team.
