Tim looks the part with excellent size, strength and athletic talent to play
multiple positions in any style of defense. Because of his size and athletic
talents he could play in a 4/3 front as a defensive end or in a 3/4 front as an
OLB/DE. Tim works well within the context of his teamís defensive game plan. He
has those long arms that can make it difficult for offensive lineman to keep him
blocked. Those long arms would also make you think he is a pass rushing
nightmare. If you select Tim expect some growing pains but with the right
coaching and if he posses the right work ethic it could be all worth it because
he does look the part.
Right now Tim lacks the instincts and techniques to be the dominating player his
athletic talent suggest he can become. His hand usage is very poor and his ďget
offĒ the line is very inconsistent. He lacks football instincts to play his
position at a high level and has benefited from the talent and players around
him this year. From the film work that I have done on Tim I question his
maturity on the field and his work ethic off the field.
Donít worry Tim Williams fans there have been plenty of times that I have been
wrong about a player. So thatís the good news but look at the film for yourself
before you come after me. You will see no double teams, no hand usage to free
himself up. Inconsistency on the snap off the ball, difficulty in finding the
ball and in general a good looking player who when not blockedÖ impacts. Donít
get me wrong Tim has made plays and Iím sure there is a highlight film out there
that takes your breath away but looking at his film from the season, all I can
tell you is I see a player who is inconsistent and void of the techniques that
he still needs to learn for the next level. He can do it but you have to ask
yourself, at this point why he isnít further along in his techniques? Why is he
rotated off the field? If I had his talent, no way a coach would take me off the
field in any situation. Tim seems to disappear once he gets a sack in a game.
That bothers me big time but like I said before, Iíve been wrong before so take
this for what it is, a profile of caution because itís very possible that Tim
just hasnít peaked yet. Itís possible he has been working hard and going to
class and thatís why he is behind in his techniques and thatís why they rotate
him in and out. All I can tell you is what I see on film and right now Timís
maturity, instincts, consistency and killer attitude is lacking on the film.
Think about for just one minute, can you compare Tim to Kalil Mack when he came
out? I canít but, he has that type of Talent.
