The Philadelphia Eagles may have struck gold in Milton Williams.

Drafted in the third round with the seventy-third pick, former Lousiana Tech defensive lineman Milton Williams has the athletic makeup to dominate opposing offenses. When you watch the film on the six-foot-three 285-pound bully, it is hard to understand why he has flown under so many radars.

Still, here we are as Williams goes criminally underrated by fans and the media alike. While he isn’t a complete prospect (no one is at this stage of their first NFL season) his freakish athletic ability makes up for any flaws you may find on his tape.

He’s capable of standing up and playing in space or with his hand in the dirt as he attacks quarterbacks. He’s a versatile player, one with a truly nasty streak to his style of play. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time. He dominates opposing offensive lines with ease.

Milton Williams is someone that helps shut down both the running and passing game. While most question the selection of Williams for whatever reason, if given the opportunity, he could truly shine for this Philadelphia Eagles team.
