    Arians pushing for WR Damian Williams in Rd. 2

    I just heard this on a local radio station discussing the draft...the local radio guy is a big Steelers fan and he claims that Arians is totally in love with Williams.

    guess we'll find out soon, less than 2 hours to go!

    btw, will there be a draft thread where we can post our comments on?

    According to Wexell, BA loves WR Jacoby Ford from Clemson as well.

    Has BA consulted with Ben and got approval for either?

    Damian Williams

    6-1/190

    Wide Receiver

    USC




    Damian Williams Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths:
    Good height with room to bulk
    Very soft hands; rarely drops passes
    Great body control
    Catches ball at highest point
    Excellent hand-eye coordination
    Love his ball skills
    Quick feet
    Elite-level route runner
    Deceptive speed
    Changes directions quickly
    Slippery fast
    Does an outstanding job of changing speeds in/out of routes
    Generates very solid Y.A.C.
    Recognizes various coverages
    Can find soft spots in zone
    Eats up off-man cushion quickly, then separates
    Gets two feet in on sideline catches; aware
    Highly talented with great upside
    Polished player
    Operated in traditional West Coast offense
    Plays with a lot of heart
    Good character and reportedly great work ethic




    Weaknesses:
    Quicker than fast; can he beat bump-and-run consistently?
    Timed speed might go under microscope if not sub-4.5
    Could be more physical at line of scrimmage
    Inconsistent blocker
    Has some wasted movements
    Could shield corners better
    Shoulder injury history must be checked into




    Summary: Williams is the kind of wide receiver I love watching tape on. He is very polished and well ahead of the pack, meaning he could contribute immediately in the NFL. With Williams' talent level and work ethic, he has a great foundation to be a star receiver in the NFL. Transferred from Arkansas to USC with high school teammate Mitch Mustain.

    Player Comparison: Jimmy Smith. Smith was that very rare route-runner you just don't find very often. Williams might be the best route-runner I have seen in four years of scouting.

    you can't coach the kind of speed that Jacoby Ford has...

    which is good because Bruce Arians can't coach.

    Santonio's best aspect was his route running. All reports concerning D. Williams is that he is an excellent route runner.
