Barlotta’s Draft Corner: 2015 NFL Mock Draft v.2

You have the ability to team him up with Mike Evans and have an elite one-two punch. 2. Tennessee Titans: Leonard Williams DT, USC – Leonard Williams is the best player in the draft. At 6-foot-5...

Why the Raiders should NOT draft Leonard Williams

One player that captured attention is USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams, who projects as a Top 5 pick.

If anyone can beat out Winston or Mariota atop the draft, it's Leonard Williams

INDIANAPOLIS — The "Big Cat" is an unusual breed. Most defensive linemen who enter the draft are projected specifically at end or tackle in 3-4 and 4-3 systems. Not Leonard Williams. The NFL hasn't had a d-line prospect with such versatility entering the league since J.J. Watt was selected at No. 11 overall by Houston in 2011. Williams is expected to get picked much higher.
