Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern

Couldn't find a recent thread on him, but I think he's a player to note for us. He's a big nose tackle, weighing in at the Senior Bowl at 6'2", 341 lbs. At the Senior Bowl, he showed great strength against the run, in addition to some surprising athleticism for his size. Although a lot of nose tackles quickly earn the title "lazy" (something I generally disagree with), he was commended for his hustle on the field and between plays. He routinely occupied two blockers during the game. There's the real question of quality of competition, but I think his performance at the Senior Bowl helps somewhat answer that question. He's an under-the-radar prospect who's moving up draft boards and who needs some polish, but I think he's a very serious option in the second round, meaning we could free ourselves up to go a different direction in the first.

So what are the general opinions of him?

Yea, good thread. I had heard the name a few times up til now, hadn't seen any videos or anything. He's build like a truck. Reminds me of a stouter Michael Brockers. Very little flab for such a big guy. I'd be ok with him in the 2nd, might even be my favorite 2nd round prospect if we don't go DT in the 1st.

We would have to take him in the 2nd because he wont be available in the 4th.

He is build like a fire hydrant. Reminds me of Geno Atkins.

This is a fella I am really interested in. He just seems like a machine and there's a lot of good stuff about him circulating around.

Between Williams at DT, Thomas/Bakhtiari at OT, & Patton/Wheaton/etc at WR, we will have a lot to choose from imo for our 2nd rounder methinks.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
