Darryl Williams is the embodiment of everything the Eagles love in an offensive lineman. He’s a physical mass at six-foot-two and 304 pounds. He’s versatile, having played both the guard position in 2019 and the center position in 2020 after Elgton Jenkins moved on to the NFL after his 2019 run.
He’s about Isaac Seumalo’s size. He’s just two inches shorter, and he’s capable of throwing a few downfield blocks. At least that’s what everyone is probably thinking after watching him turn in a 5.23-second 40-yard dash.
Here’s what Lance Zierlein had to say about him in his draft profile.
"Team captain and three-year starter who is short on traits and athleticism but plays with savvy and determination. He wasn’t asked to do much move-blocking in Mississippi State’s rushing attack and could struggle with that request as a pro, but he has upper-body power to wall and seal down-blocks and stalemate opponents as a drive-blocker. Athleticism and balance concerns could show themselves in NFL pass protection, but he does find ways to hang in and recover. He has center/guard roster flexibility and could compete for a backup role."
Place his name on your draft boards for interior linemen. It’s probably safe to say that the Eagles have already done so.
