Williams is not a guarantee to start at left tackle for any team. Williams is not as large as some of the leagues’ best-left tackles, which may make scouts and coaches be more skeptical of him, making some teams view him as a guard. Williams is too often overpowered when facing dominant edge rushers and was multiple times against Clemson’s stout defensive line. Williams played through many different small injuries at Alabama.
Williams draft stock in the eyes of the Bengals will heavily depend on what style of offense Zac Taylor will want to run in Cincinnati. If he desires a more zone running scheme, which seems to be the new NFL’s rushing attack, Williams is a solid pick. If he favors a hulking presence such as Andrew Whitworth, then he may opt for other prospects, such as Mississippi’s Greg Little. In any case, a selection of Jonah Williams tells us fans that Zac Taylor values agility over power in his offensive lineman.
