Hawks rookie NFL player comparison: Milton Williams
During the half-dead period of the offseason, we will compare each of the Hawks’ rookies with current NFL players.Before, we started from Devon Tower Smith with Landon DixonToday we will find a substitute for the third-round defensive tackle Milton Williams.
First of all, after Williams was drafted-anyway, once we settled the disagreement in the Hawks war room after the draft-the most obvious takeaway of Williams’ draft profile was his impressive career day training. The incredible exercise test is measurable.
As you can see, in DT, Williams ranks in the 99th percentile in 40-yard sprint, vertical jump, long jump and 3-cone training. In the 10-yard division, 20-yard division and 20-yard shuttle, he is also at least the 93rd percentile. Oh, he is also very strong because he did 34 bench presses with a weight of 225 pounds.
Compare him to Miles Sanders, who also tested well As a running backAnd this is what you get:
|Exercise scale||Milton Williams||Miles Sanders|
|Vertical jump||38 1/2″||36″|
The long point we have to say here is that Williams is an elite athlete.
Williams started his career at Louisiana Tech University and then went inside during his junior season. In a small sample of DT (10 games), his weight was in the 260-270 range, he had 45 tackles (10 losses) and 4.5 sacks.
Williams doesn’t have any great highlights videos, but there are many Personal footage of him on Twitter Shows his explosive power. You just need to see the good stuff through the clip of Tom Donohue rejecting Howie Rossman’s fist strike.
Looking at the explosive power, I remembered another explosive, short stature DT from the Non-Five Nations Conference. Ed OliverTo be clear, Oliver’s prospects after graduation are much better (I mean, he was selected with the 9th overall pick), and his efficiency in Houston is much higher than when Williams was at La Tech.
|Ed Oliver, Houston (32 games, 2016-18)||192||53||13.5||5|
|Milton Williams (25 games, 2018-20)||108||19||10.5||0|
From a measurable point of view, they are very similar:
|span||78 1/2″||77 3/8″|
|Arm length||31 1/2″||31 3/4″|
|Hand size||9 3/4″||9 1/4″|
|Vertical jump||38 1/2″||36″|
|Bench press||34 times||32 times|
Then from the perspective of playing style, like Williams, Oliver’s weight is very low (lower than his listed college weight, probably less than 280 pounds), and sometimes struggles in running, but obviously The explosive force of the inside against the college guards and center forwards who cannot cope with his speed.
Comparing the highlights of the two players, they are really similar. The difference is that Oliver played much more frequently in his college career, so although the Bills selected him with consistently impressive results, the Eagles selected him on Williams’ potential high ceiling. A late bloomer.
