Former USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams has yet to work out for an NFL organization, but analysts have already solidified him as a top draft pick.
Schrager wrote that Williams was his top-rated player.
“Williams played through a torn labrum last season and battled an ankle injury this year, and was still the most dominant player on the field,” he wrote.
Kiper said Williams, 6-feet-5 and 300 pounds, was the best defensive player available.
“He gives you a lot of scheme versatility,” Kiper said.
Williams made 80 tackles, including seven sacks, for a Trojans team that finished 9-4.
He will participate in the NFL combine Feb. 17-23 in Indianapolis.
