My Take

It doesn’t matter if the offense is a passing or a running because Williams doesn’t stay blocked period. Watching him play college football is darn-near like watching a man play against boys. He’s too big, too strong, too fast and just does what ever it is he wants to do out there on the field.

He stands his guy up and when he’s ready, he throws his man off to the side and makes the tackle or sack. It’s something watching him come off the edge too because at 6’5″, 300 pounds, he can run. Another thing you have to love about Williams is his hand-speed to slap hands away or throw a quick swim-move to beat an offensive lineman quick.

Zlerlein stated that he hasn’t learned to string together moves yet but he has no way of knowing that. He hasn’t had too because the first move usually works and the getting hands on more balls will come as Brugler and Rang acknowledged they were cherry picking. But Zlerlein was correct in noticing that Williams needs to react to the snap better in the NFL.
