BIO: Two-year starter at USC who posted 81/1,265/14 as a freshman and 95/1,314/16 during his sophomore campaign in '03. Declared for the NFL draft 12 months ago,
but a Supreme Court ruling prevented him from going pro.
POSITIVES: King-sized receiver who is a dominant force catching the ball. Easily beats jams throwing opponents to the ground,
offers the quarterback a big target and out-muscles opponents for the reception. Extends and pulls the ball out of the air with strong hands. Comes away with the reception even when double-teamed. Adjusts to the errant throw, looks the pass in and
makes the acrobatic reception. Uses his frame to shield away opponents and displays great power in all aspects of his game. Turned in good pass-catching and running performances prior to the draft.
NEGATIVES: Slow releasing off the line and not explosive or quick. Does not attack blocking
assignments or get the results he should. Marginal route runner.
ANALYSIS: Tremendously productive his only two years on the field, Williams is a physical specimen who could be used at a variety of pass-catching positions.
A prototypical possession receiver, Williams projects nicely as a top third-down target or red-zone threat. The combination of size, growth potential, and the lack
of pure speed could ultimately have him moving to a tight end spot.
