BIO: Junior college transfer who broke into the starting lineup as a junior. Posted 34 tackles and broke up six passes last season after 39/5/6 the prior year. Will be 26 years old this October.
POSITIVES: Undersized cover corner effective in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage. Quick-footed athlete with the ability to backpedal, turn his hips and move laterally with speed. Displays good judgment and timing defending throws, has an outstanding break on the pass and gets vertical, contorting to the ball in midair. Can close or recover on the play. Helps out in run defense.
NEGATIVES: Has difficulty battling larger opponents. Prefers to side shuffle and very quick coming out of his backpedal. Slow reacting to receivers' moves off the line and not always quick locating the ball in the air. Anxious and does not always play within himself.
ANALYSIS: Technically sound with good athletic skills, Williams must improve the details of his position and his playing strength to have shot at the next level.
