Waiting Game for Easton's Brennan Williams

When the NFL draft rolls around, Easton's Brennan Williams is expected to be draft. The question now is where and when?


At the end of April, Easton's Brennan Williams will find out where his future place of employment in the NFL will be.

Depending on what report who look at, the former 6-6, 315-pound could be picked anywhere from the second to the fourth round. The draft will take place from April 25-27 in New York City.

Williams played right tackle at the University of North Carolina, moving into a starting role as a junior. The former Catholic Memorial High standout is projected to stay at right tackle in the pros.

Lindy's Sports Draft has Williams as the 11th best tackle in the draft, grading him a 6.7, which is project to be third or four round and calls him an "ascending talent."

According to Lindy's Sports, the positives are that Williams is long armed, athletic build well-suited to play the edge, but they also say he is extremely raw.

Pro Draft Guide 2013 has Williams going to the Carolina Panthers as the 11th pick in the second round to block for Cam Newton.

They have listed him as the sixth best offensive lineman and calls Williams a big edge protector with raw strength and average quickness. They also concerned about a torn labrum that sidelined at the end of last year. The magazine says he will strive in a passing offense, but they don't feel he could move over to left tackle, because of injures and a lack of quickness. 

On nfl.com, Williams is praised for his height, athletic build and "some strength in his arms and girth in the lower body." The negatives are that doesn't possess elite quickness to play on the left side and "can be a tick late off the snap." They also said he has could become "a vicious run blocking tackle."

Right now, it's just a matter of seeing who will call his name in New York City.
