Jamell Garcia-Williams, DE, Alabama-Birmingham #99

6072, 249, 4.90


Notes: From Las Vegas, NV. His father, Jerrol Williams, played at Purdue and was a fourth-round pick by the Steelers in 1989 en route to a seven-year career in the NFL. His older brother, Jerrol Garcia-Williams played at Hawaii, was an undrafted free agent by the Broncos, playing in 11 games in 2017 and on injured reserve with a torn ACL in 2018. Began his college career at Eastern Arizona College in 2015-16 before receiving a scholarship offer from the Blazers. Played in 8 games and was credited with 1 tackle and a blocked field goal attempt in 2017. Played in 14 games, made 43 tackles, 15.5 tackles-for-loss, 9.5 sacks, 4 pass breakups and 2 fumble recoveries in 2018.

Positives: Outstanding length and natural athletic ability. Very good pass-rush tools. Can generate power from speed. Smart, good football IQ, willing to work, and has shown steady improvement. Comes off the ball well. Good range in pursuit. Will chase plays down from behind. NFL bloodlines.

Negatives: Still very raw and underdeveloped technique. Needs to use his hands better. Gets by mostly on ability to this point. Very narrow frame. Lacks bulk and strength at the point of attack and gets jolted too often.

Summary: Began to emerge last season. Still needs a lot of refinement but has some upside potential, especially as a pass rusher. Will need a year on a practice squad, but could develop.
