Williams’ name is one Philadelphia Eagles fans should discuss more often.

Much like Tylan Wallace, Marlon Williams is a receiver that doesn’t specialize in a single attribute. The UCF product has strong hands, a physical approach to the wide receiver position, and can cause some chaos after the catch.

In 41 career games, this six-foot, 215-pound prospect hauled in 157 receptions for 2,260 yards and 19 scores while becoming a Fred Biletnikoff Award semifinalist.

In college, Williams played in the slot as a big target. While the Eagles have mostly used small or quick guys in the slot like Nelson Agholor and Greg Ward, Nick Sirianni comes from a Colts offense that featured a six-foot-two Zach Pascal in the slot.

Don’t be shocked if Williams lands with the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Birds place a taller receiver on the inside to cause disruption. Hey, at least fans will be seeing something new. He’s also fully capable of playing on the outside, so those of you who prefer to see the big guys playing the split-end position won’t have to worry much.
