Strong Points: Good size with very good athletic ability for an offensive lineman. Three-year starter. Has great balance and is seldom off his feet. Very good strength and power. Has snap in his hips on contact. Physical run blocker who gets movement. Easily gets to second level, adjusts well on the move. Quick set in pass pro, has quick hands and a strong punch. Shows excellent mirror skills and plays well against counter moves. Can move his feet, slide and recover. Strong base and excellent anchor. Looks to finish every play.
Weak Points: Had a serious knee injury early in the season and missed seven games. Reports were sprained MCL, ACL and cartilage tear. He did not have surgery. Skipped Texas' bowl game to get ready for combine. His medical will be very important in determining draft position.
The Way We See It: Before the knee injury, he may have been the best tackle in the draft. If healthy, Williams is a premier OT talent who can do everything well. He is young -- just a third-year junior -- but has a lot of playing experience. Williams is athletic and light on his feet and plays very well in space. He is also a very tough and competitive kid who looks to punish opponents. Has the talent to become a Pro Bowl-caliber player. Will come in and start right away and be a solid player as a rookie. As good as he is, he still has upside.
