Ian Williams is a solid mid-round DT prospect. He’s got great strength and is a good run defender. He brings some versatility with the ability to play NT in a 3-4, although a bit undersized. He doesn’t offer much as a pass-rusher, but for a team that needs a big guy to occupy blocks and stuff the run, he’ll be a good fit.

– Strong, rarely gets driven back and washed out
– Plays with good leverage, comes natural

– Doesn’t offer much as a pass-rusher
– Doesn’t have any pass-rush moves other than the bull-rush
