DEEP FRIED DRAFT

WORST INGREDIENTS


Williams measured in at the Combine with 33” arms. This is below what NFL teams normally like an offensive tackle to have. Williams also measured in a 6’5” but he has more of a stocky build to him. The knee injury he suffered that caused him to miss most of 2017 didn’t seem to affect his play upon his return. I just wonder if there are any lingering effects.

Career Stats: N/A

Today we are going to look at potentially the top offensive tackle in the 2018 draft. Connor Williams was a four-star recruit from Coppell HS (Texas). He started 12 games at left tackle as a true freshman. As a sophomore, Williams was a consensus 1st-team All-American. Williams played in the first three games of the 2017 season before being sidelined with a knee injury. He returned for the last two games of the regular season before skipping the bowl game.

DFD COOKBOOK RECIPE

MEAL QUALITY


Connor Williams is a physical blocker who is not going to finesse you. His less than ideal arm length has led some to believe he should be a guard. He may very well end up there. I think Williams deserves a chance to start off at tackle. I believe he should come off the board somewhere in the low-to-mid twenties.
 

BEST INGREDIENTS

Williams is very powerful. He locks out pass rushers with ease. Williams sets a good base with his feet and is technically sound. He is a dominant run blocker. In the five games I watched, Williams allowed zero sacks.
