2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Thomas Williams, ILB, USC
Thomas Williams is a solid middle linebacking prospect out of Southern California. Don't overlook Williams just because he didn't start for the Trojans. After all, he sat behind three players that are potential first-round draft picks and likely could have started for most other teams in college football. Williams is a bit undersized for a middle linebacker in the NFL, but more than makes up for it with his non-stop motor. Although he may not have the power or speed of some of the players on Southern California's All-American stacked defense, Williams has shown excellent instincts and plays with a non-stop motor. Despite not being a starter for Southern California, he was still selected to the 2008 Hula Bowl and created quite a buzz with his play in Hawaii. He reads his keys quickly, rarely taking false steps. He is solid in pursuit and takes great angles. Scouts also took notice of the effort he showed on special teams, as he always seemed to be around the ball and showed the willingness to throw blocks in the return game. Williams will likely be a day two prospect and will contribute immediately on special teams.
