School: Utah | Conference: PAC 12
HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-0.5 / 202 | 40: 4.59 | DRAFT YR:2017


Projected Round
Two-year starter who earned Second Team All-Pac-12 honors in 2016 and tied for second in the conference with five interceptions, adding 64 tackles and three pass breakups. Named First Team All-Pac-12 as a sophomore, again finishing second in the Pac-12 with five interceptions and recording 66 tackles and five pass breakups. Made six starts as a freshman and finished with 59 tackles.
Athletic safety whose draft stock has been on a straight shot north for the past eight months. Fluid moving in every direction, displays excellent range and quickly gets out to the flanks to assist cornerbacks. Displays a closing burst both in a straight line and laterally, easily changes direction and works to get involved in the play. Tough run defender who squares into ball carriers and wraps up. Plays with a nice degree of discipline. Makes a lot of athletic plays on the field, gets vertical and contorts or adjusts to defend the throw. Works to keep the play in front of him.
Inefficient and does not take proper angles to the action. Has a tendency to face-guard in man situations.
Williams displayed steady progress in his game and is an athletic safety prospect who could see extensive action at the next level in a system where he consistently faces the action.
