After taking on a bigger role in 2019 which included 51 receptions for 712 yards and six touchdowns, UCF wide receiver Marlon Williams saved his best for last in 2020 when he collected 71 receptions for 1,037 yards and 10 touchdowns in just eight games. Serving as a big slot in the Knights offense, Williams is a physical receiver that has terrific hands, ball skills, and the ability to produce after the catch. He’s an elite competitor that battles for every inch with the ball in his hands and competes through contact, routinely coming down with catches in traffic. For Williams to produce at the next level, developing and expanding his route tree will be important, especially when comparing what he will be asked to do in the NFL to what was on his plate in college. Williams may not demand the volume of targets in the NFL that he had in 2020 at UCF, but for a team looking for size and vertical skills down the field—and a player who can also create space for himself after the catch—Williams is a perfect candidate for such a role.
