Williams was a beast of a pass rusher for Alabama, coming up with 20.0 sacks, and 30.0 tackles for loss. He also gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he is a powerful edge rusher. He bull rushes his way through the line to get to the quarterback. He is clearly an elite pass rusher, and he is also a disruptive defender. However he does get manhandled at times by bigger offensive lineman due to his smaller size frame. And while he did line up at defensive end at Alabama, I do not see him being a defensive end in the NFL, so he will need to adjust to being a 3-4 outside linebacker. With that said, I view Williams as a late 1st round, to early 2nd round pick when it is all said and done.
