Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-2
WT: 245

Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore season and named an All-American in 2008. Senior totals included a team-leading 54/627/4. Had 32/441/3 as a junior and a career-high 58/699/3 as a sophomore.

Positives: "Athletic pass-catching college tight end who lacks great measurables for the next level. Displays terrific focus and concentration, constantly finds the open space in the defense, and works hard to become an available target. Consistently extends his hands and makes the reception away from his frame. Keeps the play inbounds running after the catch to pick up positive yardage. Easily makes the reception in stride and adjusts to errant throws. Displays a burst of speed. Blocks with good lean, gets his hands into defenders, and gives effort. Flashes ability as a position blocker."

Negatives: Lacks the size and strength to finish blocks. Lacks the height teams want in a starting tight end at the next level.

Analysis: "Williams was a productive college tight end and is a high character prospect who is well thought of in scouting circles. Despite his lack of height, he possesses the physical skills to play at the next level and would be very good in a system that uses him as a move tight end or at the H-back position."

Projection: 3-4
