However, is a tightly wound guy who lacks ideal fluidity as a route runner and struggles to generate much burst out of his breaks. Doesn’t exhibit much suddenness when asked to slip defenders off the line or down the field and is just really tight in and out of his breaks. Is limited to more linear routes — nine, crosser — where he can simply try to run away from linebackers toward daylight. Isn’t a guy who will generate much separation for himself on sharply breaking routes at the next level.
Now, can block with natural leverage off the snap, does a nice job quickly getting his feet around and can seal bigger defenders from the play. However, isn’t natural when asked to pull in the open field, struggles to break down on contact and too often will whiff on defenders he’s asked to block in space. But, looks comfortable in blitz pick up, plays calmer, understands angles and can sit into his stance and move his feet through contact.
Impression: A good enough athlete to get some interest as a “jack-of-all-trades” type pass catcher. But he’s too stiff to consistently win in the pass game vs. man coverage and he isn’t a real impressive blocker in space."
Hands: Reliable hands. Can extend outside of his frame and pluck the ball out of the air. Protects the ball by allowing it into his chest when in traffic. Can take a hit and hang on. Good, not great leaping ability and can be pushed aside in jump-ball situations. Can track the ball over either shoulder.
Route running: Possesses good straight-line speed to force defenders on their heels, and has the balance and burst to create separation as a route-runner. Good, sharp cuts laterally. Sells his route with fakes and good body lean.
After the catch: At least moderate straight-line speed to run away from linebackers. Agile enough laterally to make defenders lunge, but isn't truly elusive as he has only moderate balance and too often is tripped up. Sets up and uses his blocks to gain maximum yardage. Runs hard. Keeps his legs churning to fight for extra yardage.
Blocking: Very good effort, but simply lacks the bulk or strength to compete as an inline blocker. Pesky. Keeps at his assignment and forces the defender to make the play while fighting him off. Works hard downfield to keep himself between his assignment and the ballcarrier, but is too easily pushed aside by defensive linemen and linebackers.
Intangibles: Characterized as a team leader and a "great guy" by coach Bobby Petrino. The recipient of the 2010 Disney Spirit Award given annually by Disney Sports to college football's most inspirational figure for his emergence as a star student athlete and crusader for domestic abuse awareness. Suffered through a tough childhood in which his biological father often abused him, his mother and two sisters. His father is now serving concurrent sentences of 25 and 27 years at the Polunsky Unit in Livingston, Texas for a number of charges, including attempted murder."
SUPER Bust Potential.
I like Williams. He can BLAST it. In fact, he CRUSHES the 2011 Tight End Class on "40" Speed, which is precisely why his Draft Stock is so high, and ascending. In a WAFER thin Tight End Draft Class, he'll probably go in the 2nd Round...And I'm here to say that he will fall FLAT: As a Zoomer of DUBIOUS Fluidity and Lateral Agility, he is going to have serious problems at the next level.
