CHRIS WILLIAMS: Vanderbilt, 6060 315 5.10. Three-year starter. A big physical athlete with good flexibility and anchor. Plays with good balance, footwork, and use of his hands. Has functional, not weight room, strength but still could use more upper and lower body bulk as a left tackle. Plays well on his feet. Keeps a good base in both his run blocking and pass protection. Plays in a bent knee position. Drives feet on contact. Effective on the second level. Would like to see him finish more consistently. Takes good angles to cut off linebackers. Struggles some on wide edge pass rushers. The deficiency is more technique than athletic ability. Makes good initial contact in pass protection. Can mirror and slide, adjust and recover. Quick feet with the ability to play flat footed. Plays with quick hands. Can deliver an explosive jolt and punch in pass protection. Good arm length and big hands. Explosive first step quickness to get into target. Would like to see more violence and intensity in his overall game. Has a good chance to start as a rookie. OSR:13/42. First round. (A-33 1/2, H-10, BP-21, 10-1.77).
