One of the more intriguing undrafted free agents that have agreed to terms with the Rams is Jonah Williams.

Some NFL observers think the pass rusher from Weber State has a chance to make the Rams’ roster so I wanted to dig into him a little bit.

Williams is 6’5 and 275 pounds, which is a great frame for a pass rusher going into the NFL. Many young pass rushers need to put on weight. He also has 4.67 speed, which is a terrific time for a pass-rusher of his stature.

Most importantly, Williams produced on the field. He was name the Big Sky Conference Defensive MVP and was a small-school All-American.

Williams entered Weber State in 2016 after serving a two-year church mission.

He’ll turn 25 in August, which is an advanced age for a rookie, especially one who may need some time to season on the NFL level. But he has ability. He has 15 career sacks and 28 tackles for loss — 7.5 sacks as a senior last year.

Plus, he clearly moves well ... check this out:

If Williams can show enough in training camp and in the preseason, the Rams may find a place for him.

Here are some Williams’ highlights:
