Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about CHRIS WILLIAMSON: Minnesota, 5115 199 4.55. One-year starter, Atlanta, GA. Played two seasons at Florida before transferring in 2017. Primarily a nickel/slot corner he has corner and safety experience in his career. Quick with his hands he could stun and separate from a block. Takes good angles in pursuit and was normally a solid wrap up tackler. Always around the ball. Showed blitz skill with a quick burst once clear. Disciplined zone defender. Gets depth in his drop and is fluid to flip his hips to find the throwing lane. Solid man defender on a slot. Keeps his focus on the receiver and mirrors route breaks. In press, maintains leverage and can be physical with off-hand jam. May lack the speed to consistently stay in phase versus a speed receiver. Has some difficulty with big tight ends. Occasionally comes in hot on a tackle and overruns the play. Sub package/special teams prospect. Shrine Bowl notes: Displayed fluid transitions with smooth turn and run to stay in phase. Mirrored route breaks well but had the occasional guess and got lost on a break. Showed good eye discipline in man cover keeping his focus on the receiver. Flashed a physical off-hand jam and didn’t bite on the first move in press. Played well at nickel against the run. 2019 stats: 56 T, 4 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 3 PBU, 1 QBH, 1 INT (1 TD). Not invited to Combine. Seventh round/PFA. (A-30 3/8, H-8 3/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
