    Williams is a man-child with huge raw power in his 6-foot-2, 215-pound body. He's been on the showcase scene for several years, and one scout said he thought Williams had a chance to be the first pick in the draft in this class when he first saw him three years ago. While he is still young for his class as a 17-year-old, he just hasn't developed yet as scouts had hoped. He has some of the biggest raw power in the class, with some scouts putting top-of-the-scale power grades on him. He has gotten into bad habits at the plate, though. He needs to keep his feet quieter and hit from a solid foundation to get to his power. Williams lacks a great feel for hitting but is strong enough to drive the ball to all parts of the park. He'll have to add polish to hit better pitching. He's athletic but lacks instincts to stay in the infield and likely will wind up in left field or first base. Williams' easy power will still earn him a high draft slot, and most of his value will stem from his bat.
