Prospect Profile: Kyle Williams


Full Name: Kyle Williams School: LSU Pos: DT

Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 299 40: 5.19 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his junior campaign. Named an All-American last year. Senior totals were 61/7.5/4.5 after 57/12/6 as a junior.

Pos: Technically sound one-technique lineman who does the little things well. Quickly gets off the snap, plays with solid pad level and chases to get involved in the action. Displays an array of moves working to get off blocks, keeps his feet and displays a burst of straight-line speed. Instinctive, reads the action and quick to diagnose.

Neg: Mostly a first-move lineman who cannot get off blocks once engaged. Lacks top speed in pursuit.

Analysis: Scrappy and competitive, Williams' ability to play with leverage and occupy blockers gives him a decided advantage. May never be a consistent starter yet a solid middle-round choice who could be used in a rotational system.
