Opted out in November and had ankle surgical treatment.


Williams is a bodily cornerback with very appropriate dimension at 6’2. He has confirmed the ability to study his play meander with the 4.4 forty he ran at his professional day. He can warfare with his pad level and hip fluidity, which causes him to be slower out of his breaks. Williams reveals appropriate explosiveness and straight-line meander. As he runs properly, he does a appropriate job matching receivers’ meander downfield and utilizing his ball skills to play via the receiver. He uses his dimension properly to study up in opposition to bigger receivers. His physicality and aggressive play style stand out, but his inconsistent tackling can also be an explain. Williams has the abilities to suit both man and zone schemes. He’ll need to continue to assemble his skills while including depth to a room.

GRADE: 6.7/10 (Profession Backup/Rotational Participant—Spherical 5)
