PROSPECT SUMMARY - MILTON WILLIAMS
Louisiana Tech EDGE Milton Williams was productive over the last two seasons for the Bulldogs, where he racked up 104 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, and 10 sacks over that span. Louisiana Tech played him both as a 5-technique and occasionally on the interior. I believe his best chance in the NFL comes in a defense that gives him opportunities to play on the edge on early downs with chances to rush from interior gaps on long and late downs. He is a terrific run defender that processes well, plays with extension, and has good power at the point of attack. As a pass rusher, Williams keeps his hands engaged and relentlessly competes to clear contact. He has good twitch in his upper body and the agility needed to get around the edges of blockers. Williams has a chance to factor into the defensive line rotation early in his NFL career with the upside to command a majority of the snaps as he develops.
Ideal Role: Base end, interior pass rusher.
Scheme Fit: Multiple.
