Drafted in the 3rd round (96th overall) by the Los Angeles Angels in 2016 (signed for $950,000)
Williams is one of the best athletes in the 2016 draft class, although his baseball skills still have a long way to go to catch up to his impressive tools. Williams was slated to be part of the 2017 draft class but he's reclassified to become draft eligible in 2016--he signed with Louisiana State. Williams is a plus runner with the live body and quick-twitch athleticism that teams look for in a shortstop. His actions and footwork have not caught up to that athleticism yet and his arm is only average, so he does have plenty of work to do to remain at shortstop. If he doesn't remain at short, his tools would fit nicely in center field. Williams is a switch-hitter with excellent bat speed and above-average power potential, but his swing mechanics and pitch recognition are still raw. Williams' loud tools are enticing but a team picking him knows he might need some extra time in rookie or short-season ball to add refinement.
