Overview:

Williams had a very productive career at Grambling State, where he played in 47 career games, he had 210 receptions, for 3062 receiving yards, and 28 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he has good speed, he was a go-to receiver, he is a great pass catcher, is sure handed, and a great deep threat. He also beats his man on a consistent basis, he is a good route runner, he is also a good blocking receiver, a tough nosed player, and very experienced. He also does a good job of breaking tackles, he makes his defenders miss with ease, he is a good redzone threat, and a dynamic offensive play maker. On the other hand, he was suspended for 1 game in 2016 due to an arrest for weapon, and drug charges, some may say his production is a product of playing in the FCS, and whileƊhe has good size, he is not the tallest receiver, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Williams as a mid day 3 pick, likely in the 5th-6th round range.
