Some people think Williams is the best prospect in the entire draft class. It’s not hard to understand why. This is a defensive end that could be dominant in either the 3-4 or 4-3. Williams has so much in his skill-set that you can’t really nitpick.
Williams is mocked by most mock drafters to the Tennessee Titans, who have the second selection in the NFL draft. Williams is the best defensive end prospect to come into the draft since J.J. Watt. Like Watt, Williams is a well rounded player who is not just a pass rusher.
With 21 sacks and 36.5 tackles for a loss in three years with the Trojans, Williams ranks as the number one defensive end in the draft class. In a class of incredible pass rushing prospects, Williams is the best overall player.
