D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas

Williams was a consistent force for Arkansas over the past three seasons after being used sparingly as a freshman in 2007. The stud tight end caught 58 passes for 699 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore, made 32 receptions for 411 yards and three scores in 2009, and hauled in 54 balls for 627 yards and four touchdowns last season. He helped the Razorbacks earn an at-large berth in the Sugar Bowl and he was named to the All-SEC First Team while also winning the Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end.

Although he does not have great size, Williams stands at 6'2'' and 245 pounds and has good strength. He does not have ideal breakaway or straightaway speed, but he has been clocked as fast as 4.52 in the 40-yard dash and is deceptively quick. Williams has soft hands and is dangerous with the ball in his hands after the catch thanks to his ability to break tackles. He is a solid run-blocker to boot, and NFL teams will love that aspect of his game.

Williams is also as rock-solid as they come off the field. He won the 2010 Disney Spirit Award as the most inspirational player in college football, in part because he overcame a tough childhood that involved an abusive father. Williams is also active in community service. Based on both his talent and his leadership skills, Williams could come off the board as early as the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
