I thought Trevardo Williams was a solid 3rd and one of my favorite 3-4 OLBs on the board. Great edge burst. Love that pick for Texans

12. TREVARDO WILLIAMS | Connecticut 6012|241 lbs|4SR Bridgeport, CT (Bridgeport HS) 12/31/1990 (age 22) #48

2012: (12/11) 42/13.5/11.5/1 PROJECTION: 4th Round
2011: (12/11) 43/15.0/12.0/2 MEASUREABLES: 6012 | 241 | 32 1-4” | 9 3-8" | 77”
2010: (13/7) 29/9.5/4.5/2 COMBINE: 4.57 40-YD DASH | 1.58 10-YD | 30 REPS | 38” V | 10-4 BJ
2009: (13/1) 19/2.5/2.0/0

STRENGTHS: Rocked up frame with very good muscle definition…quick feet to sidestep blocks and move fluid laterally…good get-off speed with a quick first step off the edge…active hands to initiate contact and burst past blockers with acceleration…very good natural strength and works hard in the weight room…plays with naturally low pad level to win with leverage…good hustle working to the play and recovering after false steps…productive starter, school record with 30 career sacks.

WEAKNESSES: Tweener size and traits and doesn’t have the frame to get much bigger…struggles to anchor and too easily redirected by blockers…doesn’t always play as strong as he looks, getting swallowed up by blockers and struggling to disengage…undeveloped counters and needs to work on his rush moves…suspect instincts and discipline, biting on fakes and losing contain, too often turning his back to the LOS…needs to consistently finish when in the area…unproven in coverage.

SUMMARY: Moved to the U.S. in 1999 from Jamaica and thrived at football and track in HS…showed obvious improvement with every rep and was consistently productive the past two seasons as pass rusher, setting the school-record for sacks (30.0)…good footwork and get-off quickness, but easily engulfed at the POA and ends up going where blockers want…has LB size, but was used as a hand-on-the-ground DE…tweener skills project him to a stand-up LB hybrid role in a 3-4 scheme.

This eliminates any doubt that Reed stays at OLB.

I ****ing love the sound of that... Didn't know much about him but that alone makes me feel like this was a good pick. Still hope we get Rodgers, Swope, or Patton if we can. Would be a HUGE and imo an amazing draft regardless of the rest of our picks tbh.

Default Re: 4th round Trevardo Williams De/OLB

I think Wade Phillips is more concerned about the outside pass rush than he is the ILB next to Cushing. Williams looks like an explosive pass rusher.

Still too early to say. These guys won't be seeing the field if they can't act like Pros.

But there's a good chance you're right.

I like the pick, gives us options & the ability to not have to force anything... including the move of Brooks to ILB.

It might be too much to ask, but we can still rotate Brooks on the outside and the inside. If Brooks can handle the load, it could give Wade a lot of flexibility.

Our rush package... wow. We've got a ton of options for our Dime.

Have to agree it appears Reed to ILB & am not sure about that. Wade is licking lips at getting this pure speed pass rusher. One trick pony, but so is a quarter horse. Good pick. Still want to see A J Klein in 5th for ILB. WR or S?

I can see Reed playing inside in the base set then kicking outside during the nickle when we take out a LB to bring in Swearinger

Default Re: 4th round Trevardo Williams De/OLB

Great draft so far. This one is pressing the 06 draft as my favorite of the Smithiak era. I'm particularly impressed given our low drafting position.

When I look at this guy, I see Bruce Irvin big time. Kind of a one trick pony - and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Unlikely to ever be a 3 down player, but in the 4th rd that is fine. Irvin was a one trick pony and was a 1st rd pick.

In the current world of the NFL, some of your most valuable players are those that can protect the QB, and those that can go get him. And with our FA losses, we needed at least one OLB, and we got two.

We added Montgomery who I view as a more versatile guy that can possibly start. But this guy is pure edge rusher and in some respects may have a bigger impact. And getting that in the 4th rd? Love it!

Another solid A pick.
