Ian Williams

Ian Williams scouting report

Ian Williams DT Notre Dame
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 320

Strengths:
Impressive size and strength. Has the perfect build to play nose tackle. Decent amount of experience – starter for 2.5 years. Has a reputation as a leader and a hard worker. Played on a defense devoid of talent – may allow him to blossom once he’s in an NFL system.
Weaknesses:
Limited athletically; won’t make many plays in the backfield and will very rarely get to the quarterback. Missed final four games of senior year with knee injury.
Comments:
Williams will be limited by his lack of athleticism, but if you’re looking for a nose tackle in the 3rd or 4th round he is well worth the risk. He lacks the truly elite size, strength and athleticism that can get a nose tackle into the 1st or 2nd round discussion, but he definitely has the potential to develop into a starter. In the right system, he could be a mid-round steal.
