Scouting Report
A second-team All-SEC player as a senior, Williamson was Kentucky's top tackler for his final two seasons in Lexington. He measured well at the NFL combine, especially his 9 1/2" hands and 32 3/4" arms. Those attributes help make Williamson a sure tackler, able to pursue and bring down running backs in open space. He also ran well at the combine, clocking in at 4.66 seconds on the 40-yard dash. The problem with Williamson's game is that he doesn't always use his speed to his advantage. The linebacker was often slow to the ball, with a delayed reaction that allowed opposing players to gain more yards than they should have. Too often he was removed from a play easily, as he struggled to fight off blocks. Williamson also has a propensity to struggle in coverage, meaning he is likely best suited to play inside in a 3-4 scheme instead of handling all the responsibilities a Mike linebacker has in the 4-3. A likely late-round pick or undrafted free agent, Williamson also will need to be an impact special teams player to stick on an NFL roster.
