There a few bigger enigmas in this year's draft than Williams. Because of control troubles, Williams has pitched very sporadically-in three of his 10 appearances this season he was pulled without recording an out. He heads into the draft having thrown only 12 innings as a junior. But there's still a lot to like despite the fact that Williams has 60 walks in 72 college innings. Scouts got a good look at Williams in fall ball, and he still has a very fast, loose arm. The ball comes out easy, even if it rarely finds the strike zone. He has an above-average fastball (93-94 mph) in short stints and his breaking ball is even better than his fastball, but he rarely commands either. Some team will take a chance on the arm and hope that regular innings will help him sort through his control problems.
