Contents Early years

Williams attended Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida, where he was a two-sport athlete in football and track. As a senior, he had 103 tackles and 10.5 sacks, helping Mainland to reach the FHSAA 6A state semi-finals, where they lost to Miami Central 7–17. However, the loss was overturned in August 2012 as Miami Central forfeited its entire season due to a transfer infraction.[2]

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Williams was ranked as the fifth best strongside defensive end recruit in his class.

As a true freshman in 2012, Williams started nine of 13 games at defensive tackle, recording 64 tackles, eight sacks and an interception. He was named the Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year.[3][4] As a sophomore in 2013, Williams was moved from tackle to defensive end.[5] After recording 74 tackles and six sacks, Williams was a named a first-team All-Pac-12 selection and was an All-American by ESPN.[6][7] As a junior in 2014, he recorded 80 tackles and seven sacks.

After his junior season, Williams announced that he would forgo his senior year and enter the 2015 NFL Draft.[10][11]

Professional career Pre-draft

In May 2014, Williams was projected a top-4 selection in the 2015 NFL Draft by various mock drafts.[12][13][14] By October 2014, Williams was projected as a top-3 selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.[15] In the months leading up to the draft Williams was regularly the 2nd pick in mock drafts,[16][17] but in the final weeks most experts predicted that Marcus Mariota would instead be the 2nd pick, with Williams subsequently falling to 3-5th place.[18]
