School: South Carolina
Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 203 40: 4.38 Year: 4Jr
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a
sophomore and led the team in receiving the
past two years. Posted pass-catching numbers
of 43/835/7, averaging 19.4 yards a reception.
Also averaged 21.4 yards on seven kick
returns. Sophomore totals included 31/428/2
Positives: Explosive wideout with the ability
to change the game's momentum in a flash.
Quickly releases off the line, runs good routes
and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Adjusts
backwards for the errant throw, tracks the ball in
the air, then extends his hands to catch the pass
away from his frame. Immediately transitions
from making the reception to running after the
catch and displays good speed. Elusive running
after the reception following blocks down the
field, and displays a tremendous burst of speed.
Outstanding running form. Good eye/hand coordination
and fluid making the deep reception at
Negatives: Not physical, shies away from
contact and marginally effective blocking downfield.
Has never been overly productive on the
Analysis: Displaying the speed
to stretch defenses, Williamson offers a lot of
natural skills for the next level. Sized well, he
has the abilities to develop into a team's number
one receiver and game breaker, but must get
stronger and learn to do the little things well.
