Bottom Line

Williams has been compared to guys like Richard Seymour and J.J. Watt as a prospect so the immediate impact is coming. He can play the 3-technique but he’s at his most dominant as a 3-4 end so the Raiders need some inside linebackers. Khalil Mack is at his best as a 3-4 outside linebacker himself as is Sio Moore, who can put heat on the quarterback when he gets the chance.

That’s why I recommend Whiloite and McClain because they both play the run well and cover backs and tight ends well. Then you have a nose tackle like Justin “You Aint Ready For This Jelly” Ellis and the Raiders have a dominant front seven with an average 3-4 end on the other side. Carr having Maclin with Streater on the other side with Latavius Murray running the ball would be something special too.

Then it’s look out Broncos, the Raiders want their street corner back!
