Scouting Report
While often overshadowed by senior teammate Marc Anthony in Cal's defensive backfield, Williams was named the team's Most Valuable Back in 2012 before surprisingly deciding to forgo his final season to enter the draft. An athletic and physical cornerback, Williams finished with 26 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble in his 2010 debut. In his first full season as a starter, Williams had 44 tackles, two interceptions and 11 pass break-ups as a sophomore. A quick and tenacious defender, Williams also put together a strong junior campaign with 80 tackles - seven for loss - three picks, 10 pass breakups and one forced fumble on the way to an All-Pac 12 honorable mention. He ranked sixth in school history with his 25 career pass breakups. Williams played primarily on the outside with the Bears, but scouts believe he has the coverage skills and toughness to contribute in nickel packages at the next level. Williams ran a 4.42 40-yard dash and opened some eyes when he tied for the best vertical leap (40.5) among cornerbacks and ranked sixth in the broad jump (10-feet-8) at the scouting combine. While Williams doesn't have ideal height, scouts believe he has shown enough playmaking ability to be selected as high as the sixth round.
