Player Overview

Pass-catchers are always going to get plenty of attention in coach Mike Leach's aerial assault and Williams, the team's leading returning big-play threat, has a chance to post big numbers with Vince Mayle now out of the picture. Williams finished second only to Mayle in 2014 with nine touchdown receptions and has the length and straight-line speed to continue making big plays in 2015.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Williams sports an athletic frame with a well-built upper body and long arms. He is quick out of his stance, showing enough agility and strength to fight through press coverage and is a fluid accelerator well suited to the vertical routes so common in WSU's offense. Because of his size, Williams is able to shield defenders from the ball on slants and posts, doing a nice job of hanging on while absorbing a big hit.

Williams is generally a reliable pass-catcher, using his long arms and strong hands to pluck passes from outside of his frame. Williams does a nice job of tracking passes over his shoulder.

WEAKNESSES: Williams' production is certainly inflated by coach Mike Leach's pass-happy attack and most of his success has come while running a fairly simple route-tree. Williams is a little bit stiff changing direction, having to throttle down slightly when making his cuts. He is prone to lapses in concentration, dropping too many "easy" passes.

IN OUR VIEW: Williams possesses the broad shoulders and steady acceleration scouts are looking for in outside receivers and his production speaks for itself. He is at his best tracking passes over his shoulder, showing some stiffness when changing directions and occasionally fighting the ball when coming back towards his quarterback. The long-striding senior projects as a fourth or fifth receiver at the next level.
