2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Damian Williams

  • Good height with room to bulk
  • Very soft hands; rarely drops passes
  • Great body control
  • Catches ball at highest point
  • Excellent hand-eye coordination
  • Love his ball skills
  • Quick feet
  • Elite-level route runner
  • Deceptive speed
  • Changes directions quickly
  • Slippery fast
  • Does an outstanding job of changing speeds in/out of routes
  • Generates very solid Y.A.C.
  • Recognizes various coverages
  • Can find soft spots in zone
  • Eats up off-man cushion quickly, then separates
  • Gets two feet in on sideline catches; aware
  • Highly talented with great upside
  • Polished player
  • Operated in traditional West Coast offense
  • Plays with a lot of heart
  • Good character and reportedly great work ethic

  • Quicker than fast; can he beat bump-and-run consistently?
  • Timed speed might go under microscope if not sub-4.5
  • Could be more physical at line of scrimmage
  • Inconsistent blocker
  • Has some wasted movements
  • Could shield corners better
  • Shoulder injury history must be checked into

    Summary: Williams is the kind of wide receiver I love watching tape on. He is very polished and well ahead of the pack, meaning he could contribute immediately in the NFL. With Williams' talent level and work ethic, he has a great foundation to be a star receiver in the NFL. Transferred from Arkansas to USC with high school teammate Mitch Mustain.

    Player Comparison: Jimmy Smith. Smith was that very rare route-runner you just don't find very often. Williams might be the best route-runner I have seen in four years of scouting.
