Look at Williams' Scouting Report from:
Rd 3 - #5(69) Jason Williams (OLB) W Illinois
Ranked 7th among OLB in draft
Projected Round 2-3
Williams was a terror in opposing backfields since shifting to weak-side linebacker from strong safety as a sophomore. In each of his last three seasons, he ranked among the nation's leaders in forced fumbles and tackles behind the line of scrimmage.
He has the quickness of a safety dropping back in zone coverage and is an above-average player in the open field with suddenness to close. He is a quick study taking plays from the chalkboard to the field. He prepares well and understands assignments.
Williams is a blue-chip prospect with a blue-collar work ethic. He is a self-starter who puts in the extra hours in the weight room and film room. He has no known off-field issues. Williams plays to the whistle. Williams is a solid wrap-up tackler.
Compares To: JAMES HARRISON, Pittsburgh -- This is high praise for an unknown player, but the more film scouts watch on Williams, the more they will notice he has the "it" factor.
It looks like he fits the bill for:
1) hard working, tough players
2) football smarts
How awesome would it be if he turns out to be another James Harrison?
