Prospects are graded on a 1-4 scale. 1=below average, 2=average, 3=excellent, 4=elite.


Strengths:

-Elite level ball skills

-Tremendous athleticism

-Has excellent length; long arms and good height a 6-foot-1

-Good speed

-Good in man coverage; plays well in phase

-Very explosive when he breaks on the ball

-Has good feet; speed turns are well executed

Weaknesses:

-Has a thin frame; needs to fill out

-Not great in zone; often gets flat footed and does not read effectively

-Lacks strength which causes him to get bumped around by bigger receivers at the line of scrimmage

-Very poor tackler; does not wrap up and his feet and base are terrible.

-Does not defend the run; lacks aggression and physicality

Analysis:

Williams is an excellent press corner with elite ball skills. But, he has quite a few fundamental flaws in his game. His ball skills are a 4; he is explosive and his length allows him to get his hands inside and disrupt the ball. His athleticism is a 4; he is very explosive with quick hips. His speed is a 4; he ran a 4.37 at the Combine. His ability in man coverage is a 3; he is the best corner in the draft when playing in phase, the only issue is that he will get thrown off of his spot by bigger receivers, he needs to add strength. His ability in zone is a 2; he is very average fundamentally and relies too much on his athleticism. His tackling ability is a 1; he is very poor fundamentally as a tackler and he lacks aggression. He has almost a Deion Sanders-esque apprehension to run support.

Overall, Williams is the best press-man corner in this years draft. He is supremely athletic and will stick to guys like glue. He fits beautifully in schemes that specialize in man coverage.

Overall Prospect Grade: 4

Potential NFL Suitors: Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers, Houston Texans, Washington Redskins
