The Buffalo Bills make a surprise pick, selecting Texas cornerback Aaron Williams. Williams projects to be a tweener for the National Football League as he may be better suited to play safety.

Standing 6'1" and weighing 198 pounds, he will likely see time in nickel coverage to keep up with the Jets' Brad Smith, the Dolphins' Davone Bess and New England's Wes Welker.

At Texas, Williams racked up 89 tackles, forced five fumbles and picked off four passes in three years.

Drayton Florence and Donte Whitner are set to become free agents and, with Williams now on the roster, it's highly likely one—if not both—will be gone.

But with Akeem Ayers, Brooks Reed and a plethora of front seven talents still available, the pick is questionable.
