Explanation of Player Grading System

The Breakdown

A true free-safety. Williams is at his best when he’s allowed to run around and make plays on the ball. Excellent range for his size and a sure tackler. Not afraid to come up in run support but coverage is his strong suit. Williams has emerged as a leader on a very talented North Carolina defense and he could quite possibly wind up being one of the first safeties taken in the 2011 NFL Draft.
