Troy Williamson - WR

 Troy Williamson Grade: 4.21
 Position: WR
 Class: Jr
 School: South Carolina
 Conference: SEC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 203
 40 Time: 4.38
  Selected by: Minnesota Vikings
  Round 1, pick 7 (7 overall)

BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and led the team in receiving the past two years. Posted pass-catching numbers of 43/835/7, averaging 19.4 yards a reception. Also averaged 21.4 yards on seven kick returns. Sophomore totals included 31/428/2 receiving.

POSITIVES: Explosive wideout with the ability to change the game.s momentum in a flash. Quickly releases off the line, runs good routes and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Adjusts backwards for the errant throw, tracks the ball in the air, then extends his hands to catch the pass away from his frame. Immediately transitions from making the reception to running after the catch and displays good speed. Elusive running after the reception following blocks down the field, and displays a tremendous burst of speed. Outstanding running form. Good eye/hand coordination and fluid making the deep reception at full speed.

NEGATIVES: Not physical, shies away from contact and marginally effective blocking downfield. Has never been overly productive on the college level.

ANALYSIS: Displaying the speed to stretch defenses, Williamson offers a lot of natural skills for the next level. Sized well, he has the abilities to develop into a team's No. 1 receiver and game-breaker, but must get stronger and learn to do the little things well.
