Rams have talked with Nebraska OG Keith Williams

Nebraska offensive guard Keith Williams told the boys at NFL Draft Bible that he has spoken with reps from the St. Louis Rams. The Rams need on the interior offensive line is well documented after last season, particularly the need for better run blocking. So who is this Williams guy?

At 6'5" 310 lbs Williams has been a starter since his sophomore season, part of an impressive Nebraska offensive line. That line has been a key part of the Cornhusker resurgence. Their offense had 10 games with at least 200 rushing yards last year.

According to this scouting report from the National Football Post, Williams possesses the ideal lower body for an interior lineman paired with strong arms. In fact, he predicted big things for himself on the bench press at the Combine in the same interview where he revealed that the Rams have talked to him. The same report notes that he's a great run blocker, efficient when pulling and getting to the second level. BUT, the report is not as convinced about his pass blocking ability.

Here's the money shot from the summary on Williams:

A tough, nasty Nebraska offensive lineman who can create movement in the run game. Plays a bit too straight-legged in the pass game, but has snap through the hips off the football and should be able to make a roster as a rookie and at worst provide some depth inside.

My question is what does Williams have that John Greco doesn't?
