Mike Williams NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’3 225lbs
- Perfect size
- Long arms
- Ball Tracking
- Great hands
- Willing to go over the middle
- Body control
Analysis: Mike Williams has the prototypical height, weight, and speed you look for in a WR prospect. He has long arms and big hands that can go get throws at their highest point, snatching 50/50 balls away from his in-air competitors. Ball tracking is impeccable. Able to track it inside, outside or over his shoulder. Hands catcher who plucks it away from his body. Williams works the middle of the field with no reservations about what is lingering. Has been asked to work all three levels of the field at Clemson. Can make cornerbacks miss after the catch and extend his play. Williams is tough enough to be a high-volume target while working the middle of the field and his size and ball skills make him a formidable foe in the end zone. He’ll have to be coached up with his routes and releases, but he has the talent to become a big safety blanket for a young quarterback.
- Focus drops
- Route running
- Needs to fight press coverage better
- Run blocking
Analysis: Mike Williams seems like a natural pass catcher utilizing his hands, but on tape, he struggled at times with drops that seemed to do more with concentration and focus than anything else. His route work lacks focus and energy, creating very little indecision from cornerbacks with his head fakes and jab steps. Ability to win with physical traits could dry up on next level. Could use better understanding of route leverage to open wider passing lanes for quarterbacks. A strong physical corner in the NFL can have his way with him, gets hung up by press corners with a good lead jab. Needs to play to his size.
