Seattle Seahawks 2013 NFL Draft Prospect: Wide Receiver Terrance Williams
With the 2013 NFL Draft upon us, I thought I would take the opportunity to watch some film on players who are typically projected in mock drafts to go around the 56th pick, which is the first pick the Seattle Seahawks have this year. I decided to scout not just all of the players who are projected to go around pick 56, but rather just the players in that area who would best fit the needs and style of the Seahawks.
This time, we will be looking at Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams. Williams was without star quarteback Robert Griffin III in his senior year, but that didn’t stop him from leading the nation in receiving yards, as he caught 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’d be a good fit with the Seahawks because–outside of Sidney Rice–they lack size at the wide receiver position. At 6’2″ and about 210 pounds, Williams would provide a bigger target for Russell Wilson to throw to and would nicely compliment the smaller, quick receivers like Percy Harvin and Golden Tate.
I’ve watched quite a bit of tape on Williams, and here’s what I gathered as far as strengths and weaknesses.
He has good size and decent speed to go with it. Very good at getting open on deep routes down the sideline. Very strong, with some coaching could become a talented blocker.
Although he has the speed to get by defenders on deep routes, he sometimes struggles to use that same speed in shorter routes. He isn’t very elusive and struggles in making defenders miss after the catch. Could stand to improve his focus and quickness.
