However, lacks the size to be able to hold up at the point of attack and if he doesn't beat the block up the field upright he can easily be washed away from the play. Doesn't exhibit much anchor strength and struggles to hold up inside when run at. Displays above average range in pursuit, but really struggled to consistently break down and wrap up in both a phone booth and in space vs. better competition. Too often would overrun angles, lose balance and not break down on his man.
Displays some natural depth in his drop and possesses above average fluidity when asked to open up his hips and get out of his breaks. However, doesn't really sit into his stance in his drop. Allows his pad level to get too upright, which takes away from his balance and ability to cleanly click and close on the football. Is routinely forced to regain balance before getting after the football, which really takes away form his initial burst when asked to close. Again, takes inconsistent angles toward the ball carrier after completions and doesn't look nearly fluid enough or instinctive enough to make the move to safety at the next level.
Impression: An undersized, small school weakside backer who has been productive and exhibits some straight-line speed. But needs to make his mark on special teams if he hopes to have a shot of making a roster in year one, because physically and mentally he's not to see the field as a linebacker yet and maybe never will."
Positive: Fluid, disciplined linebacker who plays heads-up football. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself, and shows good instincts. Quick filling the gaps in run defense, quickly changes direction, and displays terrific sideline-to-sideline range. Quickly picks up coverage assignments, fluid flipping his hips, and effectively makes plays in space.
Negative: Does not consistently play to his 40 time and shows marginal speed in pursuit. Not an explosive or quick linebacker. Undersized and easily out-positioned.
Analysis: Williams was very productive on the small school level, although he played out of position at middle linebacker most of the time. The ability to make plays in space could help him catch on as a backup weak side linebacker in a conventional defense."

High School: A three-year letter-winnerat Garrison was the district newcomer of the year, Williams earned all-district honors at running back as a senior, two-time first-team all-district selection and was named the team's MVP as a senior.
Williams graduated school's second all-time single-season leading rusher (1,491 yards in nine games) and helped to guide Garrison to the 2005 area championship and also lettered in basketball and track.
Strengths: Very quick, a leader and a player who is a dependable tackler who also can drop into the curl/flat area and look comfortable in coverage.
Weaknesses: A little undersized and even as a WLB he'll need 10 or so pounds of muscle. He plays in the middle but it's unlikely he'll be able to stay there at the next level.
Projection: PUDFA or late draftee who will need to turn heads in workouts, impress with football IQ and special teams effort to make in NFL impact."
