2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CONNOR WILLIAMS: Texas, 6051 296 5.05. Junior entry and two-year starter from Coppell, TX. Heading into the 2017 season, Williams was tabbed as the top lineman in the class after freshman All-America 2015 and All-America 2016 seasons. The thick, powerful, yet graceful athlete checked all the boxes when it came to franchise left tackle prospects. However just a few games into his junior year, he suffered a knee sprain and missed the majority of the season. He did return for the final two regular season matchups, but he left 2017 with more questions than answers. Has the proper blend of length and girth on his frame. Body-wise, he is further along than most prospects coming out. Mechanically he shows a great first few steps as a run blocker. He fires out low and fast with his hands ready to bench press his target on contact. There is a sudden jolt seen in the defender when Williams squares him up. In pass protection, he is patient. Lets the action come to him and usually times his contact well. Absorbs a bull rush with ease. He is tough to beat in a true one-on-one situation. He can get into trouble against lower, quicker defenders. Will sometimes over-commit his upper body and bend at the waist. He is one of the top tackles in this class. There are dominant guard traits to his game as well. OSR:5/38. First round. (A-33, H-10 1/2, BP-26, 10-1.74).
