Williams did not make much of an impact during his first two seasons with the Bulldogs, combining for just 10 catches and 90 yards. As a junior though, he became an All WAC performer, hauling in 43 passes for 729 yards and seven touchdowns. Williams came crashing down as a senior, as injuries limited his success and playing time. He only played in 7 games and had just 29 catches for 221 yards and a touchdown.
Paul Williams is one of the most physically gifted wideouts in this draft. He has good size, with a solid build, is an excellent athlete, and has very good speed. He can be an intermediate and red zone threat, but also has the ability to make big plays with the ball in his hands. Williams has a lot of upside, and could really develop in the NFL.
Despite all his talent, Williams only had one great season. He needs to put in more work to live up to his talent. He has also battled injuries during his career, and must stay healthy to continue to develop.
Williams entered the year as a potential first rounder, but a disappointing senior season has made his draft stock slide. He had a solid showing in the post season and may have pushed himself back into the third round area. If he falls to Day Two, he could be a big time steal for someone down the road.
