Player Evaluations

2022 – WR – CJ Williams – Mater Dei, CA – 6’2 / 193

247 Rank:  National - 39 / WR - 4 / CA – 5

Commitment – Un-Decided

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation –  Sophomore Highlights Hudl – 4/1/20 – 7m 56sec

Physical Attributes –  CJ is a big bodied, outside WR.  At a 193lbs right now he will certainly be at or above 210-215 when its all said and done.  He is tall and long and look like he is put together.  He shows decent twitch, feet and get off.  He also shows decent burst, acceleration and long speed but not elite.  Had very good body control.  He excels at being able to adjust to the ball and then catch the ball.  He has above average hands and can win the one on one balls.  A powerful WR that will develop over time as his body develops.  

Position Specific Skills –   CJ shows decent intial quickness, burst, acceleration, and long speed.  His play speed, in terms of running ability stick out because of his ability to run routes. He is a smart route runner that understand leverage.  He uses his ability to drop his weight to create separation when he has to.   Not an overly elusive player but makes up for that with his size, strength and big catch radius.  Can be a deep threat / red zone threat  for those reasons.  He has the body and size to be an excellent blocker which is limited on this exposure.                     

Overall –   When fully evaluating CJ, know that we are dealing with a 4.23 GPA, 6.3 and close to 200lb athlete.  I project to an outside WR, who runs great routes, and has an understanding of where the holes are in the defense he see’s.  He then can find those holes.  He possesses great hands and can separate on the outside by dropping his weight.  His fast play speed allows him separation but at the end of the day he will dominate, smaller CB’s on the outside with his size, length and strength.&
