A flexible lineman, Williams displays a decent initial kick-step off the ball and does a nice job initially remaining balanced toward the corner. But he isn't fluid enough to hold his own on the left side at the next level. At times, he looks top-heavy, lacking the type of range and athleticism to consistently reach the edge against speed rushers. Does a good job dropping his pad-level on contact and extending his arms into blocks. Lacking ideal power on his punch, he consistently takes the brunt of the bull-rush. Struggles to stay on blocks at the point of attack. Has a tendency to overextend in space and will stop moving his feet, allowing opposing lineman to quickly sidestep his block and get after the quarterback. Showcases the ability to cleanly redirect in pass protection and has good lateral mobility when asked to quickly slide inside on the counter move. Looks much more comfortable dropping his pad level on contact and anchoring when asked to mirror in space. Exhibiting good body control in the run game, Williams does a great job of turning and sealing opposing linemen away from the ball on bootlegs outside the pocket. He displays an above-average pop on contact, but he struggles to consistently stay on blocks through the play. He really seemed to struggle making the transition to the left side at Oklahoma this season. Looks like a right-side player only. Based on his game tape from this year, he's not a potential starter at the next level.
