NFL Draft Prospect: P.J. Williams, Cornerback From Florida State
As we approach the 2015 NFL Draft, it’s time to find out more and more about the players who could be helping out the Eagles in 2015. Each week here on 973ESPN.com, I will feature a new a player from positions of need for the Eagles and players who appear in some of the prominent mock drafts.
As we see names appear in mock drafts and hear about names that the Eagles met with and talk to at the college all-star games, the combine and pro days we will find out more about them here.
The last two weeks we have looked at safety Kurtis Drummond of Michigan State and Eric Rowe a cornerback from Utah. This week we are going to stay in the secondary and a guy that Scott Wright, President of Draftcountdown.com has the Eagles taking at pick No. 20 - P.J. Williams, cornerback from Florida State.
Check out previous draft prospects:
Williams is versatile, having played both corner and safety for the Seminoles, he'll most likely be a corner in the NFL and his size is something that fits the Eagles mold at that position. The 6-foot, 196-pound Williams, who has the ability to play press and off-man zone, he definitely has first round potential, but does have some off-field concerns.
From Scott Wright President of Draftcountdown.com on the Sports Bash:
"I think Trey Waynes is the top corner in the draft, he'll go somewhere in the top half of the first round, but after him there are question marks. But I think an argument can be made that Williams has as much potential and talent as one corner in this class. He certainly bigger then Waynes, little bit thicker of a frame, really athletic, has the speed to run down the field. He's very physical and aggressive, almost to the point where it's a detriment, he is going to have to reign that back in a little bit at the next level.
But P.J. Williams is the total package, but the one question mark on him is consistency, he doesn't always play up to that early first round talent.
