Strengths:
Seth Williams is arguably the best hitter for the No. 3 Tar Heels.  He’s got good plate discipline.  He has good extension and uses his legs well when he makes contact.  The ball jumps off his bat.  He has improved his walk and strikeout rate every year.

Weaknesses:
Williams may fall into the tweener category: not fast enough to play center field, but not enough of a power hitter for a corner.  He profiles as a below-average center fielder as a pro.  He’s a slightly below average runner.

The Future:
He should have been drafted last year.  As a senior, he’ll be gone by the 15th round.
