10/02/12 - 10/01/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: DE NATHAN WILLIAMS, OHIO STATE...Last August, Williams was poised for a big senior season, coming off a team-high 4.5 sacks as a junior in 2010. But he went down with a left knee injury in the 2011 opener that eventually required surgery, ending his season and possibly his career. However he earned a medical redshirt for one final year of eligibility and worked his way back onto the field ahead of schedule this summer, playing limited snaps in the season opener this season. Through five games, Williams has steadily improved and finally looks near 100% medically, making fluid movements and showing little hesitation. Against Michigan State on Saturday, he looked back to his old self with excellent closing burst and the ability to drop in space, showing the instincts to react in a flash with smooth footwork and body control to pick up running backs in coverage. Williams has active hands and plays with an intense temperament and nonstop motor, never giving less than full effort on the field. He recorded his first sack of the season against the Spartans, his first sack since November 27, 2010 (Michigan), and added a season-high five tackles and two quarterback hurries. The new coaching staff raves about Williams and his progress, using words like “warrior” and “competitor” to describe him. Lining up mostly in a two-point stance off the edge, Williams has a tweener skill-set and lacks a natural position, but if he continues to work his way back to full health, Williams could earn a draftable grade between now and April. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
