Going back to the first-round pick of this draft, the Colts defensive line is probably their weakest point in this draft. With aging players and players who aren’t playing to their potential, Williams could be a good pick up for the depth on the line.
What’s important about him is he’s a run-stopper. With a run-stopping grade of 90, the Colts could use his skills to help stop the run more and get the opposing offense off the field. With only 2 sacks on 607 snaps, you can tell his strength is on run defense.
However, his weaknesses are obviously on pass-rushing, but all of his non-coaching abilities are below average. He also has an issue getting off blocks, but he can set an edge and force the runner inside of the tackles. He’s also projected as a 3-4 defensive end first, but he can play in the 4-3 lineup at a defensive tackle. Being only 6’4″, 298 pounds, he lacks the size of other players at his positions in the NFL.
It may seem early to start talking about next year’s draft, but this is what the scouts do year-round. It’s never too early to look at possible new talent.
