Draft Profile: Bio
Xavier Williams from Chaminade-Madonna Prep High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Williams opted to join Alabama.

In 2018 as a freshman Williams saw action in just one game for the Crimson Tide as he made 3 receptions for just 24 yards for an average of 8.0 yards per reception, with no TDs, and a solid QB rating when targeted of 72.1.

As a sophomore in 2019 he played 5 games and had just one catch for 7 yards for an average of 7.0 yards per catch, with no TDs, and just QB rating when targeted of 42.4.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s equally dangerous in catch-and-run situations as Williams is taking the top off a defense
  • Williams tracks the ball well downfield and consistently runs under long throws.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
  • Williams fights his way off the line of scrimmage against press coverage, showing quick, violent hands and good balance.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Williams lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, Williams isn’t great on contested catches.
  • Williams fights hard for the ball, but he too often fights to catch it; there are too many double catches on his highlight reel. It shows up in contested-catch situations in the red zone.
  • Has only average height and overall length. Lacks initial burst off the line of scrimmage and has more build-up speed than track wheels. Limited explosiveness and flexibility and will struggle to separate against pro defensive backs
  • Lacks ideal size and strength and is a ·mallish target with a lean, frail-looking frame. Can be overmatched at the line of scrimmage when physical !le/enders get their hands on him. Struggles in press coverage and was knocked on his back more than a few times.
