Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AVERY WILLIAMS: Boise State, 5083 187 4.43. Four-year starter, Pasadena, CA. He is undersized but plays with energy and solid fundamentals. Experience in a variety of zone concepts he has a quick pedal and is smooth in transition. Maintains a good cushion and is fluid in turn and run on vertical routes. Has the speed to stay in phase up the field. Excellent short space change of direction, he is sudden breaking on short throws. Good vision to close voids in the seams between zones. Shows mirror ability and can be sticky reacting to route breaks. Solid fundamental tackling skill, he can be explosive launching into tackles on wide outs. Size is a limiting factor in matchups with taller receivers. Can get walled off and lose out on contested catch battles. Ball production has been limited as lack of length inhibits ability at the catch point. Makes more tackles than plays on the ball. His biggest value is on special teams as an outstanding returner on both kickoffs and punts. He has been extremely productive with several long returns in his career. Has also been a threat blocking kicks. Played well on kick coverage units in his career. Projects as a slot corner in sub packages in the right scheme. He most likely will be drafted by a team looking for an explosive return threat. 2020 stats: 19 T, 2 TFL, 1 PBU, 1 FF, 2 BK, 15-229 PR, 15.3 avg (2 TD), 19-533 KOR, 28.1 avg (2 TD). Sixth/seventh round. (A-28 3/4, H-9, VJ-33.5, SS-4.00).
