The top safety tandem in the SEC for the last two seasons was Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams of the Georgia Bulldogs. Rambo may have received most of the press, because as the free safety he had more freedom to roam around the secondary making plays.
Williams had to balance run responsibilities in addition to pass coverage, and he still collected a combined 170 tackles in 2011-12. Over his career, he demonstrated a variety of ways to affect the outcome of the game.
After putting up some outstanding numbers at the combine, he outshone his more colorfully named teammate at Georgia’s Pro Day. According to the venerable draftnik Mel Kiper, they could end up switching places in the selection process:
