2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Wendall Williams

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.

The Rundown

Wendall Williams put his name on the map with an unreal pro day which saw him run 4.19 forty-yard dash, the equivalent of 4.32 sec. on laser time. That pro day performance was enough for the Texans, who were concentrating on adding speed for the offense during the off season. Williams had some success at the University of Cumberlands, showing enough to be optimistic that he can play the position at the NFL level. 


His speed is something that is a reality and, on the field, Williams can eat up the field in a hurry. He can get vertical and the most impressive part of his game is when he catches the ball and walks away from defenders, especially in the middle of the field. His biggest hill to climb is learning the nuances of the position. Physical ability is not the issue. 

Roster Situation: This is a loaded wide receiver position and being a 25-year old rookie could work against him. Practice squad is the best case scenario for Williams.
