The Buffalo Bills had the opportunity to draft future quarterbacks Andy Dalton or Colin Kaepernick, or the NCAA sack leader in Da'Quan Bowers with the 34th overall draft pick in the second round of the NFL draft.

Instead the Bills decided to upgrade their secondary with the selection of defensive back Aaron Williams from the University of Texas.

Just as the Bills' first round pick Marcell Dareus played multiple positions along the defensive line at Alabama, Aaron Williams played multiple positions at Texas. He has played cornerback, played as the nickel back covering the slot receiver and he is also believed to be able to play at safety.

Williams is just a touch under 6 feet. He weighs 204 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash anywhere from 4.55 to 4.60 seconds. He had a vertical jump of 37.5".

At the University of Texas, Williams recorded 46 tackles in 2010, five for a loss, and forced three fumbles. In his career, he picked up 106 tackles, had four interceptions and blocked five kicks, which is a great asset for the Bills special teams unit.
