Troy Williams Predraft Analysis

The predraft summary analysis on Troy Williamson.

Troy Williamson, South Carolina, 6-1, 203 — Third-year junior ... Two-year starter who caught 74 passes for 1,263 yards and nine TDs in that span ... Two-time South Carolina high school track champion in the 100 and 200 meters ... Second-team All-SEC last year ... Has experience returning kicks ... Blew away scouts with an incredible 4.32 40 at the Combine ... Has speed to take any pass thrown at him all the way ... Big hands and plucks the ball with ease ... Determined blocker who doesn't mind mixing it up ... Doesn't have the kind of experience scouts want in first-round picks ... Didn't play in a pro style offense, so he will need to make a lot of adjustments on the fly ... Doesn't have great bulk or lower body strength so corners will try to jam him a lot ... Didn't lift or jump at the Combine but ran the aforementioned 40 time and had a Wonderlic score of 21.

PROJECTION: His pure speed will get teams like Dallas and Carolina in the middle of the first round interested, but he may take a year or two to develop. Should have stayed in school another year, but with a new coaching staff coming in, he felt his best shot was to go now, and he should land somewhere in the first round.
