He is tall enough at 5’11” and uses his strong frame as a battering ram against offensive players. Williams is fast and has a great initial burst, which allows him to quickly gain momentum when he looks to deliver a big hit.
He is also a reliable tackler in space. Williams squares up nicely to the ball-carrier and creates a good base. He gets his pad level down and wraps up the lower body of the ball-carrier for a sure tackle.
In coverage, Williams can be relied on as a single-high safety to patrol midfield, or he can be used in man coverage. His athletic ability allows him to contest for jump balls with larger wide receivers.
Here are some highlights from Williams’ career while at Nevada.
Note: Williams wore No. 5 and No. 20 while with the team.
