Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about LEONARD WILLIAMS: Southern Cal, 6045 302 4.96. Three-year starter from Daytona Beach, FL. Impressive physical specimen. Explosive in the interior and gets consistent penetration into the backfield. Has the size and strength to stand his ground and stack. Uses his hands to violently shed blocks. Good arm over move and is a natural bull rusher. Quick and strong enough to be a two-gap player. Extremely versatile and can be matched up over any position on the offensive line. A nasty hitter with good hip explosion. Closes quickly to the quarterback. Reacts quickly to a variety of blocking combinations. Plays square to the line of scrimmage and stacks double teams on a regular basis. Gets his hands up to make the quarterback throw out of a well. He has had 9 pass breakups and two interceptions in his career. An instinctive player who diagnoses the play quickly after controlling his opponent. Good reactions on the move. Explosive first step quickness to leverage the blocker. He unloads his hips with force. A stout inline player to stuff the run. Good body control and balance. Has the ability to disengage the blocker quickly and find the ball. Good use of hands to separate from the blocker. Stays on his feet. Has a slippery quality to get by an opponent. Makes the tackle without losing ground. Needs to develop more functional upper body strength to take on NFL caliber blockers. He did not do the bench press at the Combine or at his pro day due to shoulder surgery. He played for three defensive line coaches in three different roles over his career. Still an ascending talent with Pro Bowl ability. 2014 stats: 80 T, 9.5 TFL, 7 sacks, 2 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 2.31, right 2.20. OSR:28/31 for DE. First round. (A-34 5/8, H-10 5/8, BP-DNP, 10-1.75).
