History: Three-star recruit from Calvery Baptist Academy in Shrevesport, LA. With teammate Shea Patterson, he won consecutive state titles. He chose not to play in his teams bowl game, to prepare for the Draft. Has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft, will forego his Junior and Senior season. Real name is Andraez, “Greedy” is his nickname.
Strengths: Good size and length. Excellent hand usage to re-route receivers. Very physical. Makes good plays on the receiver, reading their eyes and breaking up balls even when he hasn’t gotten around. Has the speed to stick with most guys. Great fluidity, natural runner with excellent balance.
Weaknesses: Can get pushed around too much. Needs to get stronger. Not as good in off coverage, as he is in man. Doesn’t close as well as you’d like in off coverage. Can still get a little lost when the ball is in the air, at times. Not as quick as he is fast and sticky. A little grabby for NFL referees.
Overview: Long and sticky corner with good hand usage and feet. Williams will need to get stronger and be active in the run game. He’s immediately plug and play day one starter. He best fits in press-man where teams can stick him one one side and forget about him. He proved his long speed is legit at the combine, and didn’t participate in any other tests.
