If the Bengals wish to find a long term starter with minimal risk in this years NFL Draft, they should consider taking the Alabama tackle. Williams isn’t a massive presence, standing at 6’5 and around 300 pounds, he would be considered a tad small for a franchise left tackle. However, Williams is well rounded in both pass protection and run blocking, as well as being athletic enough to be used in screen packages and rollout protections. Williams shows flexible hips in his kickstep, which allow him to generate the necessary power to hold his ground against even the best pass rushers. Even if Williams is moved inside, he should be a dependable starter on the offensive line for whichever franchise selects him.
