QUOTE TO NOTE: "It was crazy (after the Texas win). Everybody was happy, even coach (Bill) Snyder was smiling. You do not see that much. It was crazy and I am going to cherish every moment of this (Big 12 championship)." Kansas State DE Meshak Williams. - The Sports Xchange
The Wildcats have several draft prospects on defense, most notably linebacker Arthur Brown and cornerback Nigel Malone. But Williams has also emerged as a viable NFL prospect and a player who is rising for pro scouts.
Williams has good initial burst off the snap and closes quickly in pursuit, recognizing run or pass.
Listed at just 6-3 and 245 pounds, he lacks an ideal frame, but does a nice job using his limbs to take on blocks and use different arm and hand techniques to get past the initial blocker to be a factor in the play.
Williams will be a candidate to be a stand-up rush linebacker at the next level, but he plays a tad tight when asked to drop and play in space.
