Trent Williams Scouting Report
By Matt McGuire  [via]

Strengths:

  • Solid height and bulk
  • Long arms
  • Very athletic
  • Gets set quickly
  • Nice lateral movement
  • Consistent footwork and mirrors well
  • Patient; gets comfortable in stance
  • Gets to second level
  • Displays short range explosion
  • Light on his feet
  • Great balance
  • Instinctive; counters moves well
  • Nice stunt/blitz awareness
  • Effective hand punch
  • Shows ability to handle elite speed off edge
  • Weaknesses:

  • Lacks a nasty demeanor
  • Not very physical in run game
  • Sometimes lets rushers into body
  • Occasionally has bad posture
  • Must sustain blocks at higher level
  • Lapses in concentration
  • Looks a little stiff with knee bend

    Summary: Trent Williams is a very solid left tackle prospect, but he has lots of room to improve in the running game and I don’t think he will ever be considered an elite pass protector in the NFL. Williams is making the move from right to left tackle in 2009, and NFL scouts will be monitoring his progress closely. The official Oklahoma Web site claims he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.82 seconds… we’ll see about that at the Combine.

    Player Comparison: Donald Penn. Penn is an athletic pass protector, but lacks a nasty demeanor against the run.

    1. I like this post. It simply states study and observance about the skill. I think anyone needs to improve on something. So if he wants to become a better player than he is, he’d better work on those aspects.
