Williams was draft-eligible in 2020 and ranked as the No. 181 player in the class a year ago, as scouts were enamored with his lefthanded bat, power potential and track record as a freshman All-American who then went and performed on the Cape. Williams wasn’t able to rediscover that offensive production and struggled to hit over .300 the next three seasons. This spring Williams hit .247/.356/.534 and did manage a career-high 13 homers that eclipsed his 2018 mark of 12, but he also struck out close to 24% of the time while doing so. Williams has been a chronic tinkerer at the plate who’s changed his swing repeatedly, but he certainly has above-average raw power in a strong, 6-foot-3, 216-pound frame. Williams was a catching prospect out of high school but moved to a full-time outfield role early with Auburn, but this spring got a solid amount of time behind the plate and teams could be interested in trying him there at the next level, as he’s a below-average runner with above-average arm strength.
