2017

2016

Williams is the reason why Cincinnati was willing to let Reggie Nelson head to Oakland, and with the latter gone Williams should step into a three-down role. As an IDP, he's a blind swing for the fences. His exact fit isn't clear Nelson was a centerfielder while Williams has always been known as a strong safety and his production to this point has been lacking, with just 54 career tackles and two interceptions in three years. The ideal outcome would be George Iloka working as the centerfielder and Williams playing more of an in-the-box role.

2013

Williams is athletic for a strong safety, especially in a straight line, but he is probably better suited to playing downhill than he is in the centerfield. He's on the IDP radar for sure, because Taylor Mays is weak competition at safety.
