Reminds Us Of

DeVonta Smith Philadelphia Eagles

Arguably the most prolific playmaking prospect in the country, Williams accounted for over 4,600 all-purpose yards and 65 touchdowns in his final two seasons at Saraland (Ala.). High School. Possessing a wiry frame at a shade over 6-feet and 165-pounds, the 5-star has drawn comparisons to former Heisman Trophy victor and Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith due to his size in addition to his natural ability to create separation at any part of the field. A smooth mover with elite verified speed, Williams chews up ground quickly, utilizing his speed, athleticism and body control to create leverage while maintaining the ability to change gears without any wasted motion. A true game-changer in every sense of the word, Williams’ positional versatility alongside his run after catch ability make him one of the most day one ready prospects in the country when projecting to the next level. Although he’ll need to add some necessary bulk to his frame before enduring the rigors of Power Five football, expect the Alabama native to become one of the games most breathtaking athletes with the ball in his hands and as he undoubtedly possesses the talent to develop into a early Day-1 NFL Draft choice.
