The more I watch this guy and Montgomery the more I love these picks. Williams is going to give us burst off the edge that we don't have. Both he and Montgomery bring ferocity to the pass rush.

I'm going a step farther and saying that quite a few of our picks including these guys bring quite a bit of nastiness and swagger. Even the offensive guys do. Swagger is overrated to me, but at times last year we lacked confidence. I don't get the feeling from any of these guys with our first five picks have problem with confidence whatsoever.

Montgomery stacks the point of attack as well as any olb in this draft. I am worried about any man coverage responsibilities on anything more than a 3 sec count, especially extended crossing routes against quicker backs or tight ends. I think the speed is there but not the fluidity. Watched some T Williams game tape, love this pick with a little coaching he is going to be instant impact this year 5 or 6 sacks easy.

I just saw Williams vs NC State, and he terrorized Mike Glennon. I just wonder if he has enough strength to shed blocks in the NFL. I guess size wise, he compares to Dumervil and James Harrison. But, those guys just seem more bulked up to me. There's no questioning William's quickness, though. As good as the Jordans and Mingos in that regard.

Mr. Williams to be on 610 am in a few minutes.

Edit: I misunderstood them. They are talking to the fan that got to announce the Trevardo Williams pick :/

Double Edit: They are actually going to talk to Trevardo next

Connection was kind of bad so hard to understand him fully, but he Talked about Ryan Griffen and said he's a good play maker. He said he's not extremely familiar with the Texans Roster beyond WATT. But he knows that we have a lot of good young players. He's from an area in Jamaica know for speed. He has always been a high energy guy that loved to run since he was a kid.

He's kind of quiet, but he sounds like a smart guy.

I could easily see us leaving Reed where he is and starting this kid next to Cush over Dobbins by mid year.


I can also easily see us bumping Reed inside next to Cush with Williams Montgomery platooning at SLB.

We've got so much versatility with the draft of this kid its ridiculous.

Also, it sounds like another UConn player, WR, is thinking about signing with us as a UDFA. He said that guy had "gorilla hands" and could catch anything thrown to him.

Is that who he was talking about? Greene and Hodges also went right before Williams.

From Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan:

Scout's Take: Maccagnan on OLB Trevardo Williams

Quote:
“Trevardo is another defensive end in college, playing in a 4-3 defense, we are projecting or going to convert to an outside linebacker. Whereas Sam (Montgomery) is obviously a bigger-statured guy and a more powerful player, Trevardo is actually shorter in terms of height; he’s about 6-1 and a half, about 245 pounds, but Trevardo is more of a speed type athlete. Now, he does have fine strength and ability from that standpoint. At the Combine, he obviously he displayed his speed. When you watch him on the college tape, he is a very, very fast, explosive player with very good initial quickness. When we evaluated him, we liked him from a pass rush ability standpoint. We definitely thought he had the skill set to make the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker. I think he had 12.5-plus sacks each year the last two years in that conference, so he’s been very productive as a pass rusher in college in the Big East level of competition. When you watch him versus the run, he is a strong player for his size, (has) the ability to hold the point of attack, control a tight end, shows good ability and real good speed and range to kind of run and chase and make plays versus the outside run or down the line of scrimmage versus the inside run. It was a guy that we liked where we got him and we thought it was a good value-type pick in that spot in the draft with the ability to potentially be a good player for us in our scheme. We really felt he was a really, really good athlete with the physical tools to be able to play that position."

I think he is going to really improve with some pro level coaching. Their HC was the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys and Dolphins but I don't see an extensive pass rush repertoire. A whole bunch of pass rush upside though.

I think his biggest problem is that he has just about no pass rush moves. He plays the run pretty good but I don't see him doing anything like this... just go to 4:40

Default Re: 4th round Trevardo Williams De/OLB

That is not what I am getting at. Point is that Long shows the ability to set up his guy to the inside and then put a pass rush move on the him, something Williams does not do. Williams has a much higher celing but has yet to develop just about any moves IMO due to poor coaching. Also watch the play in regular speed right before 4:40 and the play after. Long lacks athleticism and probably won't get much better but has some good moves. Williams IMO has the strength, more than Long but appears to get swollowed up because after his speed move he has nothing left in his arsenal so he puts both his hands in the OL' s chest.
