Williams had a nice career at Eastern Illinois over 2 years, where he played in 23 career games, had 82 tackles, 19.0 for loss, and 7.5 sacks, proving to be a monster on defense for the Panthers. He has good size, he also has good speed, is a good pass rusher, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He also is a hard hitter, a run stuffer, he wreaks havoc on defense, and is a sure fire tackler. He is also a tough nosed player, and he put up good sack numbers in only 2 seasons at Eastern Illinois. He also has a non stop motor, and is in on every play. While he has good speed, he does not have elite edge rush speed, but that does not hamper his game at all. With that said, I view Williams as a late round pick, to a priority free agent after the draft. And whoever drafts or signs him, will surely get a player who gives it his all, and will be a very good player with some developing into whatever system he ends up in. He could also be one of the hidden gems in this draft.
