PROSPECT SUMMARY - SETH WILLIAMS

He's got the prototypical size and skill set to be an “X” in the NFL. A natural hands-catcher with strong hands who rarely allows the ball to get into his frame, Williams rarely double-catches the football. He likely won't win against press coverage with foot quickness. However, when he learns to use his hands and excellent functional strength, he won't have an issue off the line of scrimmage. He's fearless when catching slants over the middle and is very good in contested catch situations. In the NFL, he will be a red zone nightmare for defenses in slant, fades, 50/50 balls, and back-shoulder situations. He will have no problems excelling on special teams if needed. He doesn’t have elite separation agility at the top of the route and likely won't win with quickness against man coverage in this way—he has some stiffness in his hips.

Ideal Role: Subpackage wide receiver.

Scheme Fit: This player has the skill set to fit into any offensive scheme.
