Jabara Williams to Rams: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Keith ThomasContributor IIIApril 30, 2011

Jabara Williams was a four-year starting outside linebacker for Stephen F. Austin and is considered an athletic option to potentially take a gamble on in late rounds.

The 6'1", 228-pound former Lumberjack didn’t participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, but did run a 4.58 40-year dash and posted a 36-plus vertical leap at the Stephen F. Austin Pro Day.

His athleticism is perhaps best demonstrated by the fact that has played both ways—racking up 230 rushing yards on 46 carries at running back his freshman year to go along with his usual linebacker position.

During his senior season, Williams recorded 108 tackles, 1.5 sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss, primarily as an inside linebacker although he projects to move outside at the professional level.

During his sophomore and junior campaigns, Williams recorded team-leading totals in tackles with 123 and 113, respectively.

Following his senior season, Williams was named to the NFLPA All-Star Game.

In high school in Garrison, Tex., Williams earned all-district honors as a running back following his senior season. While at Garrison High School, Williams also starred in basketball and track and field.
