USC DL Leonard Williams is an "exceptional talent" who possesses "a rare combination of size, easy athleticism and raw power," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Williams is a freak who earned Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year honors as a DT, and then converted to DE to collect 74 tackles -- 13.5 for loss -- and six sacks while battling through a nagging shoulder injury last year. "He possesses a naturally large frame with broad shoulders, long limbs and a trim middle that makes it easy to see why the Trojans have rotated him all over the defensive line," Rang wrote. "Williams has impressive initial quickness, lateral agility, flexibility and balance to penetrate gaps and attack on stunts. He has very long arms, which allows him to keep blockers from latching on." According to the analyst, Williams must work on his leverage -- he tends to play high -- and could stand to read passing lanes better in order to knock down more attempts. "It is hard to imagine a scenario in which Williams doesn't wind up among the top five selections of the 2015 draft," Rang wrote. Jun 27 - 2:31 PM
