Daryl Williams, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma 

Measurables: 6’5″| 327

Attributes (40 / vertical / broad jump /3-cone): 5.34 / 26 inches / 97 inches / 8.18 seconds

College: Daryl Williams was an Oklahoma Sooner from 2010-2014. He started all 13 games in his last two seasons and enjoyed a lot of success.

Strengths: Very physical player who leads by example. He has a great work ethic. He’s a solid run blocker who plays to the whistle. His hands are strong and he reacts well to defensive line schemes. 

Weaknesses: Needs to improve balance and body control. His athleticism is slightly sub par. He may need to be switched to guard because while he is a smart, tough player, his pure athletic skill is wanting. 

Bears fit: If te Bears draft this guy in the fourth or fifth round, I see him as a swing lineman or potential starting guard. He would see playing time if Matt Slauson does not stay healthy. I think the Bears should try to draft him, because guys with great work ethics are often hard to find. He should have a good career as a backup at worst.

Draft Protection: I expect Williams to be picked around the 4th or 5th round.

Here are highlights from his Oklahoma Pro Day.
