Bottom Line

You can see from all his tools that soon after he enters the NFL, he’ll be among the game’s elite at his position. Of course, he has a grip to learn but he will as he is already too strong for tackles and too fast for guards. He’s a rare specimen that plays the run and pass equally well and puts it on the line when injured.

One thing the scouts didn’t say anything about that they should have was his motor. Remember, with only 51 scholarship players available this past year, the Trojans had no depth, leaving Williams on the field all day. When Zlerlein touched on him not always playing like he’s capable, he must have forgot about that.

So where does he go?

Everyone likes to say they’re going to draft the best player and not for need but that’s untrue.

If Winston fell to No. 3, would the Jaguars take him?

Thank you!

One through three are all strong at the interior defensive line position and there are some great edge prospects. So of course, Tampa Bay gets Winston, their quarterback, Tennessee goes quarterback, edge or trade, Jacksonville goes edge and Williams lands in the lap of the Oakland Raiders at No. 4 overall!

And that will be a happy day in Raider Nation!

For him too because that’s where the Bakersfield, California native has always wanted to play.
