Overview:

Williams is clearly one of the top receiving prospects in this years class, he had over 170 receptions, over 2700 receiving yards, and 21 receiving touchdowns. He has great hands, he has great size, he is a solid blocking WR, and he always seems to be open. He makes defenders miss with ease, and he breaks tackles with ease. He also is a great route runner, and he commands double teams. The issue some will have had is whether he is fully healed from a neck injury that cost him most of his 2015 season, but I do not see this as an issue, I expect Williams to be a 1st round pick, and one of he first 3 receivers off the board come draft night.
