CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Auburn junior WR D'haquille Williams has helped his cause with NFL scouts" and "continues to wow with his athleticism, strength and hand-eye coordination."
"Dak Prescott and a deep Mississippi State defense certainly looked the part of the No. 1 team in the country in their dismantling of Auburn, the SEC's reigning champion. Ironically, however, it was a member of the Tigers who may have helped his cause with NFL scouts the most in this contest, as junior wide receiver D'haquille "Duke" Williams continues to wow with his athleticism, strength and hand-eye coordination," Rang wrote. The Auburn prospect hauled in six receptions for 108 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Saturday's loss to Mississippi State. Rang adds that, Williams "composure, competitiveness and body control to make several circus catches as the game went on will not go unnoticed by scouts." Oct 14 - 2:57 PM

Williams, who goes 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, has impressed us with his speed and ability to win in contested situations.

Williams, who goes 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, has impressed us with two traits key to next level projection: Speed and ability to win in contested situations thanks to outstanding hops. ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote last week that Williams "could be the big juco breakout newcomer of the season," adding that the newcomer "jumped on my radar last season when he simply destroyed junior college competition for a second straight year at Mississippi Gulf Coast." Back in December, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters he expected to throw more in 2014 thanks to the signing of Williams. He'll continue to do just that.

Auburn junior WR D'haquille Williams "could be the big juco breakout newcomer of the season," wrote ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"He jumped on my radar last season when he simply destroyed junior college competition for a second straight year at Mississippi Gulf Coast, and we saw more of the same [against Arkansas in the opener]," Kiper wrote. "Consider that Auburn completed 16 passes this week and Williams accounted for nine of them. He has good size (6-2, 216) and is a great leaper who can win at the catch point but is also explosive after the catch. He could be the big juco breakout newcomer of the season. A possible Big Board debut awaits." Way back in December, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters he expected to throw more in 2014 thanks to the signing of Williams. Yeah, he's that good.
Sep 10 - 6:37 PM

Auburn junior WR D'haquille Williams caught nine passes for 154 yards and one touchdown in the school's 45-21 win over Arkansas.

This was Williams' debut for the school, and it was a good one. The JUCO transfer mostly played out of the slot but displayed positioning, contested catches and speed to pick up yards on the ground. He could be the next one and done receiver prospect, however, it is very early. Expect Auburn to throw more often this season.
Aug 31 - 6:50 PM

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters he expects the school to throw more in 2014, thanks to the addition of JUCO WR recruit D'haquille Williams.

The Tigers are lacking boundary weapons this season, but it isn't like quarterback nick Marshall is a reliable passing threat just yet. Tre Mason might jump to the NFL, but Auburn will surely continue to rely on the ground game and utilize play action off of that next season.
