  • DT, 6'2", 341, and quick.
    He has been tearing it up at the Senior Bowl.

  • I've been reading up on this kid and now I'm in full P&J mode for him to be a Seahawk.

  • NFLDraftScout has him as a round 3-4 pick? Seems like great value there. Or, is it expected that he will be a fast riser after the senior bowl and combine?

  • Damn. Big boy. I wonder where he would fit in.

    But can you imagine an even tougher goal line unit with someone his size? :D

  • Everything I've read so far says he could see his stock shoot way up like Poe did last year, only this kid can actually play football too.

    I will not claim to be a scout, but I just watched the senior bowl practice from today and the guy is very agile for the weight that he carries. He also was able to dip his shoulders without hesitating in another drill.

    edit: Sorry, I was wathing Jenkins from Georgia.

  • Generally speaking, the senior bowl hasn't really had much impact on draft stock, but maybe Williams will benefit from eliminating the "level of competition" argument from his detractors with this week's performances.

  • Literally every time i've read about this guy first thing people mention is how he has a relentless work ethic and is very humble about everything he has accomplished, Can't have to many of those guys right?

    ...oh also how he can be a demon rushing the passer :lol:

  • Here is what I'm wondering, can he play the 5? Finding a guy with Red Bryant size that can rush the QB is even rarer than finding a good 3-tech.

    When i saw this video, this guys just reads JS all over him, what people say about his work eithic, he's humble(does that remind you of anyone? :mrgreen: ) and he has some fast feet for his size.
    And when i see read over 300 pounds, i would think big fat guy, but he looks like he is made muscle man, dude is ripped, i wouldn't doubt he goes no later then 2rd round, depending on his combine of course, but i think he's going to put up some good numbers though, and especially with a weak DT class and his versatility. :th2thumbs:

    That was my thought too. Having a guy who can play both Red and Branches spot.

  • This is my "Russell Wilson" for the 2013 draft. I don't care what it takes, but this is the guy I absolutely want the Seahawks to land, with DeAndre Hopkins a VERY close 2nd.

    The possibilities would be limitless. 5 tech, 3 tech, just plug and play baby. What's great is that he's 6'2" which is better for him winning the leverage battle at the line and even though he's 341, he's absolutely jacked. That clip in the video above where he's hosing himself down, if he punched me in the face I'd immediately evaporate into a cloud of dust. I want to see that happening on a weekly basis to opposing OLinemen!

    At the same time?

    JMO, but Red and Brmach's spot are too very different roles by design. The 5 tech is Pete's scheme is more like nose tackle, and the 3 Tech is more like a traditional strong side end. They didn't just do that because of Red, they did it because Red fit what they wanted out there.

    What they haven't found is a legit 3 tech. Finding that will free up Clem and Irvin even more.

    I'm leaning toward Short or Jones in that role.

    You aren't wrong, but you are wrong! I should have said 5 tech and Red Bryant defensive end. (Red is so big, I think he plays the 7,8,9 tech at the same time) Pete really wants that one defensive end to be able to two gap, he was going to move Branch over there if Red missed time. A more accurate statement would be if a guy could both one and two gap successfully rather than describe where he lines up.

    Could this guy do both? I think he could. In one on ones at the Senior bowl, he was just killing guards and centers single gapping up the middle, and in the college footage I saw, he played those outside roles too.

  • I guess I'm saying I'm not overly concerned about Red's spot. I want someone who can 3 tech at a high level. Period.

    Solid draft, but it feels a bit like the Bengals . . .

    This is how I feel. Rushing the passer with a big 5-tech just feels like a fundamentally flawed idea in a 4-3.

  • Brandon Williams is now near the top of my Seahawks draft wish list. From what little I have seen of him his short area quickness looks just as good as Kawann Short's & Williams is 30+ pounds bigger.
    Here is a quick article on him;[url][/url] http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1424 ... n-williams

    If he has a combine like he thinks he can, does anyone believe what happened with POE could happen with this guy? He is becoming one of my favorite players in this draft and would be happy if the FO took him in the 1st.
