Scouts, Inc. Evaluation
Williams is a versatile skilled athlete on both sides of the football. He isn’t the biggest player on the field but has good skills along with possessing excellent quickness and impressive speed. Shows the talents to play either safety or corner. At corner can run with a receiver man to man while staying on the inside hip. Positioning makes it tough to throw over the top; when attempted, his leaping ability helps him make a play on the football. Comes out of coverage quickly from the corner position to contain the football. Makes solid tackles but increased bulk will help him be more physical when delivering the hit. A very instinctive free safety that breaks quickly on passes to the intermediate and deep zones. Soft and reliable hands along with football intelligence displayed when making the interception and heading downfield. Demonstrates same athleticism as a running back on offense. Quick feet and burst allows him to pull away from defenders in the openfield. Makes cuts while going full speed and often freezes would-be tacklers in their tracks. Must be careful to secure the football in a crowd; tends to carry the football a little low and away from the body. Catches the football easily from the running back position and knows how to stay in the hips of his blockers on the screen pass. Williams is a real talent and most likely end up in the secondary. He could play early in his career as a safety, corner or nickel back.
