Report: Bengals receiver coach checking out Toledo's Stephen Williams

Twenty two colliege players took part in Toledo's Pro Day, which broke down with 15 from Toledo and seven from small schools. Sixteen NFL teams checked out what the Pro Day had to offer, which includes safety Barry Church and running back Dajuane Collins. Writes Gil Brandt, Bengals wide receiver coach Mike Sheppard was checking out Stephen Williams do position drills. The report on Williams from the Combine.

Williams is a good sized receiver with excellent ball skills but is very raw and will need a lot of work when it comes to running routes and setting defenders up. He has natural hands as well as the ability to react and adjust to slightly off-target throws and should find his early success as an inside red zone receiver that can use his size and ball skills to catch the ball over the middle and in traffic. He will high point catches and shows excellent concentration and competitiveness when in a crowd. He tends to telegraph his cuts and can be a bit choppy in and out of his breaks.

Willliams caught 70 passes or more in each of his final three seasons at Toledo, combing for 21 career touchdowns and over 3,000 yards receiving.
