At 6’4″, 250 pounds, Williams is a very good blocker so he can be in the game on running plays as well as passing plays. But when it comes to passes coming his way, that’s going to be the treat that an NFL team would get for picking him. Williams is about as dynamic as they come for tight ends as his extreme athleticism makes him a nightmare match-up.

He has good speed for a tight end and runs good routes so he can get vertical as safeties and linebackers won’t be able to stay with him. Then, you already know what happens when you put a corner on him as he has great hands to finish plays. Williams uses that speed and athleticism to run after the catch as he isn’t easy to bring down and I’ve even seen him hurdle a man after the catch.
