Player Overview

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks the part of a traditional NFL possession receiver with broad shoulders, well-built arms and thick overall musculature.

At his best on jump balls, showing excellent hand-eye coordination to pluck passes outside of his frame, even with defenders draped on him. Impressive concentration and body control to contort to make the difficult reception, showing awareness of the sideline. Uses his broad build to position himself in front of defenders on underneath routes, showing courage to go across the middle. Accelerates smoothly for a big man, surprising defenders with his ability to eat up the cushion and generate yardage after the catch.

Drew high marks from the coaching staff for his commitment to film and the classroom.

WEAKNESSES: Tops out quickly and possesses just fair speed, overall. Lacks the shake and bake to elude NFL defenders and doesn't play with the physicality that his bulk would indicate.

Simply bigger than most cornerbacks but does not possess truly explosive leaping ability and too often fails to time his jump properly, catching passes while coming down rather than at the highest point. Allows too many passes into his chest plate, allowing defensive backs an opportunity to break up the pass.

IN OUR VIEW: Williams leaves Ball State with an impressive resume, including 200 career receptions for 2,723 yards and 24 touchdowns to earn All-MAC honors each of the past three years. Williams' ability as a red zone target could draw Day Three consideration, with his realistic upside being as a fourth or fifth receiver.
