Lance Zierlein (NFL.com) wrote:
STRENGTHS Supremely gifted interior lineman with length, athleticism and elite power. Lined up just about everywhere along the line at one point or another. Able to jolt offensive linemen with powerful hands and is extremely hard to redirect for offensive linemen once he gets going downhill. Explosive hip snap to leverage blockers and is rarely moved from his gap. Often a read-and-react two-gapper and plays peek-a-boo with running backs while discarding blockers at will when he's ready to tackle. Too much play strength for zone blockers to cross-face him. Fires out with low pad level when playing the run and is difficult to submarine on short yardage. Has feet and brute force to recover and get back into a play after being beaten early. Dangerous pass rusher from twist game, showing big closing burst. Effort rusher who will eventually get home if single-blocked. Beginning to develop spin move as pass-rush counter. Showed intriguing potential as a pass-rushing end in space. Frame able to hold more weight and muscle.

WEAKNESSES Is a little late out of his stance off the snap. Must learn to consistently fire hands out as weapons. Slow to transition from run stopper to pass rusher when teams throw on first down. Pad level rises and legs straighten out as pass rusher. Base will narrow, slowing momentum and limiting full potential of his bull rush. Hasn't learned to set up offensive linemen or string together pass-rush moves yet. Doesn't always play to capacity and pursuit is lacking when play heads away from him. Still very raw. Wins with physical tools over skill.

DRAFT PROJECTION Round 1 (top three)

SOURCES TELL US "You can't over-think this one. It doesn't matter how raw he is because he's got freakish qualities that are rare for men his size. I think he has a chance to be as good as Kevin Williams. That's his comp." -- NFC Director of Scouting

NFL COMPARISON Kevin Williams

BOTTOM LINE Enormously powerful defensive lineman. Has the look and feel of the biggest, strongest kid on the playground but hasn't figured out how to unlock his natural gifts and consistently dominate the rest of the kids on the playground just yet. Williams can play in an odd or even front, and is able to hold the point as a two-gapper or disrupt upfield. With coaching and more experience, Williams should be able to match the athleticism with the power and become a consistent Pro Bowler with a ceiling that goes even higher than that.
Dane Brugler & Rob Rang (CBSSports.com) wrote:
STRENGTHS: An exceptional talent, boasting a rare combination of size, easy athleticism and raw power to go along with a passion for the game. Possesses a naturally large frame with broad shoulders, long limbs and a trim middle that makes it easy to see why the Trojans have rotated him all over the defensive line.
Impressive initial quickness, lateral agility, flexibility and balance to penetrate gaps and attack on stunts. Very long arms, which allows him to keep blockers from latching on. Shows good technique to chop away opponents when they are able to initially lock him up. Locates the football quickly and has good speed for pursuit.

Displayed his passion for the game in toughing it out through an ankle injury for most of the 2014 season.

WEAKNESSES: When the game comes as easily to a player as it appears to with Williams, it is easy to nit-pick technique and consistency. Williams, like most taller defensive tackles, struggles at times with leverage. He gets his hands into passing lanes but needs to show better awareness and hand-eye coordination to make those big mitts weapons.

COMPARES TO: Gerald McCoy, Buccaneers - Williams is earning comparisons from scouts to everyone from McCoy to Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt for his ability to dominate the line of scrimmage while alternating between defensive tackle and defensive end.

IN OUR VIEW: Regardless of where he lines up, the Daytona Beach, Fla., native has been a standout. His physical make-up is extremely impressive with his size, length and athleticism to line up at any position on the defensive line, inside or outside, and be effective.
Tony Pauline (DraftInsider.net) wrote:
Positive: Athletic and game controlling defensive lineman with potential at a variety of spots up front. Plays with leverage, good pad level and explosion. Fires off the snap, easily changes direction and fast moving laterally in pursuit of the action. Instinctive, effectively anticipates plays and intense. Focused on by opponents but defeats double-team blocks to get behind the line of scrimmage and disrupt the action. Works his hands throughout the action, knocks back blockers with explosive hand punch and rarely knocked off his feet.

Negative: Does not consistently play with proper pad level and makes himself an easy target for opponents. Solid pass rusher but still very raw.

Analysis: Williams is a one-man show and can be impossible to stop. He comes with a large upside and the ability to be used as a conventional tackle or at end in a three-man line. Williams should quickly break into the starting line up as a rookie and immediately impact whichever team drafts him.

Best player in the draft, that's one thing.

Looking at the potential of this defensive line now, it's insane. Who knows if we're keeping this pick due to the fit, but I'm intrigued to say the least.

I like Williams, just don't like the fact that Wilkerson will get traded.

The Jets should trade Coples or listen to offers for Wilkerson as much as I'd hate to see them go

He was the BPA, I would have liked to of traded down though. I feel like this means Wilkerson will be on the trade block.
