2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina

University of North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams has overcome adversity to become one of the premiere talents in the nation. After bouncing in and out of high school, Williams found his way in junior college before making a name for himself with the Tar Heels.

Williams is a well-built prospect that does well to gain penetration into the backfield. Technique is a bit inconsistent, yet he moves very well laterally and can take away running lanes. Not a huge player that can consistently handle double teams. At his best in one-on-one situations where he can rip, swim, and adjust his feet to make a play on the ball.

Can get a bit reckless, frustrated, and out of control in his pursuit when trying to gain ground. Tries to stay on assignment, but sometimes gets caught pushing into the backfield when he needs to protect his lane. Williams has a good motor, but stamina is a concern late in games. He will need to learn how to bring consistent effort from start to finish.

Williams currently projects as a late first to early second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
