I watched that last night and came away positively impressed. Appreciate your concise analysis.I've never seen his hands as a weakness.
I think you have to watch the film of him against real talent. You can't really pay too much attention to all those catches, yards and TD's against MWC defensive backs from Air Force and Hawaii that he can just run by due to his talent or blown coverages. You have to watch him matched up against who is in my opinion the top underclassman CB in the 2020 draft. C.J. Henderson of Florida.
Williams was able to be physical and beat the press of Henderson when he was lined up outside and not in the slot. He was able to create separation from Henderson with his route running (sinking his hips) and being physical. He was able to break tackles and physically compete against that caliber of defense with the ball in his hands - forcing the 2nd or 3rd guy there to have to bring him down. The only time I really saw the first tackler bring him down were on reverses (Vosean Joseph, etc.)
Kid could always play.
From what I saw, the dude had the D beat deep a number of times but his QB was essentially being
pummeled and couldn't get the ball out (Colorado State's OL was seriously outclassed by the Gator DL).
But Williams still made some plays and was obviously ready to compete.
BTW SO RIGHT about the dawg thing.
I love the attitude this kid plays with -- I'll root for him on that premise alone.
We need that so bad...
