Patrick Williams is a very athletic, energetic combo forward that can attack the basket to garner scores, and he is a good defender that can block shots and guard multiple positions. He played well in his role this year as a freshman. He will need to improve his jump shot and playmaking skills, but his length, athleticism, and versatility, and upside could enable him to be a first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
