Giants working out Tyler Clark, Nakia Griffin-Stewart, Tim Williams

Williams was a third round pick by Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens in 2017 out of Alabama. Only two career sacks.
I remember the name

Tim Williams now. Two sacks in three years? I think Sy had good things to say at Draft time, though(??)

Was undrafted this year out of Georgia. I remember taking him as UDFA in BBI Mock Draft.
I remember Tim Williams mentioned here during the draft

He only has two career sacks but both came in 2018 in just 7 games. He could be worth rolling the dice especially on the practice squad.
Here is Sy’s scouting report

Tim Williams – 6’4/244 – Alabama: 74

Summary: Played four seasons for Nick Saban, really contributing for his final two. 2nd Team All American in 2016 and was the top edge rushing threat for the nation’s top defense. Williams has the straight line burst and agility to make him a nightmare for tackles to get their hands on. He showed that he is more than an athlete in 2016, however. His rush move repertoire took a step up as he diversified his approach to reaching the passer. His ideal fit would be a 3-4 rush linebacker. The drug and gun issues are major red flags however, thus he will have a lot to answer in the pre-draft process.

*I had a higher grade on Williams, but point blank this guy is gonna have trouble staying away from failed drug tests. I hope I’m wrong because he has the kind of talent every team, no matter the scheme, is looking for on the edge. He can burst and bend with the best in this class and we aren’t talking about a string bean. Williams was one of the most powerful lower body lifters at Alabama. He can be a big time impact player in the right role if he stays clean.
We are due to hit on a Reclamation Project....

Didn't work out but he added that Ravens ask a lot of OLBs set edge, drop into coverage, pass rush .- has been suggested he may not have had the football IQ for what they wanted.

Suggested if less is put on his plate, might work out better. Said he was part of problem in 2019 until free agents came on board Jihad Ward & LJ Fort - who outperformed Williams
