Kevin Williams

SELECTED BY JACKSONVILLE , ROUND 1, PICK 9, OVERALL PICK 9
DT | (6-4, 304, 4.84) | Oklahoma State
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Redshirted in 1998. Played every game the last four seasons and started 42-of-46. Had 28 tackles, six tackles for loss and two sacks in '99, when he started every game. Recorded 35-7-4 in 2000 and 36-11-5 in '01, when his only nonstart was because of an ankle injury. Started 13-of-13 games in '02, making 61-14-7. Was a lesser-known heading into the Senior Bowl, but he left Mobile as one of the hottest names.

Positives: Good hands, athletic ability, quickness and speed. Plays hard, shows some burst and closes on the quarterback. Good worker and leader. Long, 34:-inch arms. Is coming on and also can play defensive end in some schemes. Modest, yet confident in his ability.

Negatives: Gets neutralized and struggles shedding blocks. Plays too tall, loses leverage and has average lateral movement, rush skills and athletic ability. Is stiff and not sudden, plays without much knee bend and gets out of position with inside pass-rush moves. Average leverage, strength, production and football intelligence.

Summary: Undersized tackle with the speed to play end, he should be one of the top 10 defensive linemen drafted, and could be a first-rounder.
