In response to mbeaulieu07's comment:
Not a Rd 1 pick, IMO... would much prefer him on Day 2. Intriguing length and upside, but very raw, and inconsistent (could be due to his relative inexperience with the game) with his play speed at this point and is a bit older as someone else mentioned.
I'd much prefer a Tank Carridine in Rd 1 if available.
Mbeaulieu, dude, Jesse Williams will be there when we pick. He's Vince Wilfork part 2, what are his upsides and downsides?
I hope you're right, Jesse is and has been the top player on my board for months now.
He too is relatively new to the game (started at 15 I believe), has positional versatility (can play inside in an even front and anywhere on an odd front), moves well laterally for a big man and may be the toughest player to move off the football in this entire draft... incredibly stout at the POA... also love that he has the Saban defensive pedigree which could help ease his transition to BB's scheme.
On the "negative" side, he's still raw as a passrusher and while he has the power to collapse the pocket with his bullrush, he'll need to develop more of an advanced pass rush repetoire, though BB's scheme isn't really condusive to high sack totals for interior defensive lineman.
