Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about XAVIER WILLIAMS: Northern Iowa, 6020 325 5.20. Three year starter from Kansas City, MO. Long arms and big hands to separate and disengage from a blocker quickly. Plays with violence, power, and short area quickness. Blocked 7 kicks in his career. Highly productive senior year with an incredible 93 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, and 8 quarterback sacks. Was in on 90% of the snaps. Was not in a rotation that is a luxury to many Division I defensive linemen. A two time state wrestling qualifier in high school. Good reactions, strength, and technique to hold his ground versus double teams. Made the best of his East-West Shrine invitation by dominating the week of practice and demonstrating his explosiveness, hustle, and disruptive nature in the game. Pushes the pocket from the inside. Uses his hands, feet, strength, and effort to leverage and defeat a blocker. Stays on his feet with good balance and body control. Can bend and he plays with a strong base. Williams’ best may be ahead of him as a rotation Sunday talent. Not a quick twitch defensive lineman, but a steady and reliable talent. Gets stuck on a block at times and plays too high, losing his knee bend. Will guess on the snap count and jump off sides. Endurance was in question until you study the tape and see that he didn’t come off the field. 2014 stats: 93 T, 14 TFL, 8 sacks, 3 QBH. Not invited to Combine. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 1/2, H-10 1/4, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
