Pros: Shows nice strength and gets good position in the ground game. Has nice technique in pass protection and is a knee bender. Has nice mobility and is quick into his stance.

Cons: Needs to improve his hand use and doesn't deliver punch to defender. Will miss some assignments when he's pulling and blocking in space. Will lose balance at times and whiffs on some blocks off the snap.

Overview: Has nice size and is an effective player that needs to refine some his techniques, particularly as a run blocker. A three-year starter at center.

NFL Forecast: He has good size potential and ability as a run blocker. Williams could potentially play some at guard, but would not be great there because he doesn't have ideal size. Williams is probably a nice backup at the next level, but would only be an average starter. He has a chance as a starter, but needs to refine his hand use mainly. But I think he'll be a solid backup that should play for several years in the league. But as a starter, wouldn't be anything special. Much like former Terp Melvin Fowler.

ATL Forecast: Williams is worth developing for the Falcons and could take over the center spot within two or so years, but probably wouldn't be that much better option than McClure. He'd more than likely serve a similar role that Ben Wilkerson has served the past few years and adds depth mostly.

Value: For a team looking for a backup center with some potential, they might take him at the end of the seventh round. But I'd wait and grab him as an undrafted free agent.
