Green Bay Packers are supposedly foaming at the mouth to draft Super Mario Williams....heck, is he better then DeMarcus Ware? Suely not......had anyone seen him play? Ware is much faster...... North Carolina State DE Mario Williams By Nolan Nawrocki Feb. 23, 2006 Mario Williams DE Mario Williams (Jr.) North Carolina State Ht: 6-6 | Wt: 285 | 40-time: 4.65 (all figures are estimated) Upside: Rare physical specimen with tremendous natural athleticism. Looks the part with long arms, huge hands and a giant wingspan. Reported to camp at almost 300 pounds and carried the weight very well. Looks like a man among boys. Has natural pass-rush ability. Very strong upper body and just swats blockers around. Stout vs. the run and can stack the corner and control blockers. Can play every position on the defensive line. Very durable. Has started all 36 games of his career and has played through injuries. Tremendous upside. Only 20 years old and is mature beyond his years. Downside: Needs to be more consistent and does not dominate like he should all the time. Could play with better leverage, hand use and pad level. Scouts would like to see him play with more urgency. Does not have great instincts. Takes some plays off. The way we see it: Big, strong, powerful base end with rare physical ability. Comes in the same mold as Julius Peppers and Courtney Brown. His hands are not as good as Peppers’, and he’s not as physical as Brown was, but he is stronger than both. When he wants to be, he can be a sheer force, but his motor needs to run all the time like it did late in the year after Chuck Amato challenged him at midseason. Williams has the full package and can flat-out change games. He plays the run and the pass better than any defensive end who has come out in a long time and has all the makings of a future star. Can fit just as easily in a 3-4 scheme as he would as a 4-3 base end. The eighth wonder of the world, Williams is worth considering with the very first pick in any given year.
