While freshman quarterback Shane Buechele and junior running back D’Onta Foreman have received a lot of praise, they aren’t the Texas offensive player on Pro Football Focus’ Midseason All-American Team.
Sophomore Connor Williams was selected to PFF’s Midseason All-American Team with a grade of 84.1. Here’s what the site said of Williams.
Williams has been outstanding as a true sophomore, allowing only two hurries on 239 pass blocking attempts this season. He’s taken his run blocking to a new level this season and his 81.7 grade rank is tied for fifth in the nation.Advertisement
Williams began the season on the Outland Trophy preseason watch list and was a preseason All-Big 12 selection. The 6-foot-5-inch, 283 pound lineman became the starting left tackle as a true freshman and has been a mainstay ever since. The former Texas top 100 recruit was named a freshman All-American by ESPN, USA Today and the Football writers Association of America. He was named to the Big 12 honorable mention team last season.
