Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama

University of Alabama defensive tackle Jesse Williams is a very thick prospect with a well-balanced game. He does not have many glaring weaknesses and can contribute both against the run and pass.

Williams is quick in short spaces and really gets after the action. Finds himself in the mix and fights for position until the whistle. Not physically dominant, but he can impose his will on guys if he can get good hand placement. Williams is an average athlete and may not ever grow into anything more than a rotational player. Needs to bring high energy late in games and usually starts far better than he finishes. He'll need to add muscle to his lower half. Strong upper body can overpower defenders with the proper leverage. Must lose baby fat and add more muscle to really push blockers into the backfield.

Good snap anticipation. Still new to the game of football after growing up in Australia. Decent ceiling as he continues to learn the finer techniques. Very good tackler when someone gets in his zone. Really explodes into the ball-carrier and can punish opponents if he has any forward momentum.

Williams projects as a second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft but could slip a bit due to limited athleticism.
