One of the most highly sought after players in the nation coming out of high school, Williams showed flashes of brilliance during his career at Penn State...A First Team All-Big Ten Conference selection as a senior when he had three touchdown catches, three touchdown runs and three touchdowns as a returner...Extremely versatile athlete who can help an NFL team in a variety of ways...Can play on the outside or in the slot...Has good, not great, hands...Is a team player and takes pride in his blocking ability...Dangerous with the ball in his hands...A true leader...Never emerged as a go-to guy and may not be suited for that role in the NFL...Must become a more polished route runner.
