Turfshowtimes.com, which follows the Los Angeles Rams, recently marveled "how more people don't know about this kid" outside the scouting community.
Turfshow included Williams on its list of mid- to late-round picks that would fill needs for the Rams, citing his combination of size and speed and his "explosiveness to go up and take the ball with ease."
Similarly, fantasypros.com IDs Williams as a late-round fit for the New Orleans Saints. "He has some big play ability and could help stretch the defense for (Drew) Brees and the Saints," the site says.
The 6-2, 200-pound Williams turned in an impressive Pro Day in Pullman last month with 40 times of 4.39 and 4.41 seconds and a vertical jump of 40.5 inches. Coupled with a good day catching the ball, his Pro Day work prompted ESPN analyst and former Dallas Cowboys personnel director Gil Brandt to upgrade him from undrafted free agent prospect to late-round possibility.
Williams caught 192 career passes at WSU -- including 75 last season -- for 30 TDs and nearly 3,000 yards. Bouts of the dropsies no doubt tempered his NFL outlook.
The draft runs from April 28-30.
