Joe Williams Scouting Report

"Elite burst and top end speed with quick decisive feet. Motivation is a potential red flag however, and he's risk/reward project."



Elite burst and top end speed with quick feet. Flashes decisive cuts. Tough, keeps his feet moving and can string moves together. Experience as a pass blocker and receiver. Solid vision and runs to daylight.



Balance isn't great. Has lateral ability but tends to run too linear. Not a powerful guy at this point. Generally good lean but gets upright sometimes.

Too eager to bounce it wide at times. The elephant is that he quit on his team citing that he was mentally and physically drained. He's likely off a lot of team's boards as a result.



Williams has had one of the more unique college careers you'll come across. Bounced around, attended a JC, before marrying and transferring to Utah. Abruptly quit on his team to start his senior season after having somewhat of a breakout at the tail end of his junior season.

Perfectly content at that point to pursue a degree in social work. Then pivoted again and returned. Then absolutely dominated in 5 of his last 6 games.

He’s a risk/reward guy in the mold of Washington's Dwayne Washington or ND’s C.J. Prosise. There's not a lot of tape but he's an explosive, natural runner. His motivations for quitting will be the repeating question for him throughout this process. If he's dialed in and committed, he'll help a team win.
