Bryce Williams

TE · East Carolina
Built like a basketball power forward, Williams was a firt-team All-American Athletic Conference pick in 2015 and enters the NFL with impressive career numbers: 96 receptions for 1,045 yards and 13 touchdowns. Williams looked unstoppable in stretches as a senior with five or more catches seven times and his best effort came against Florida, accounting for nine catches in his 58-catch season. Williams redshirted at Marshall in 2011 before deciding to transfer to East Carolina and walk on before fall camp. He earned a roster spot but did not play that season. Williams appeared in all 13 games as a sophomore and earned All-Conference USA honorable mention honors with 20 catches for 220 yards and five touchdowns. He followed that up with 18 catches for 237 yards and four touchdown catches while earning second-team all-conference honors in 2014.


Value is as a pass-catcher with his long-striding speed and smooth route-running to attack soft spots in coverage. He moves like a wide receiver and catches the ball well in stride, displaying a good-sized catching radius and aggressive ballskills to pluck in contested situations.

leaner than ideal and lacks desired bulk for the tight end position. lacks ideal power as a ballcarrier.

williams is a tough, scrappy player who can line up inline, in the backfield and out wide, playing like a bigger version of riley cooper on the field.
