Packers Draft Analysis: Texas CB Aaron Williams

New, comments

I've been looking at cornerbacks who could be drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the first round. First was Colorado CB Jimmy Smith. Next was Miami CB Brandon Harris. And finally, at least for today, is Texas CB Aaron Williams.

Williams has prototype size (6'0" and 204 lbs.), and showed great quickness in the shuttle and cone drills. He's a former Parade All-American, so he's no one-year wonder. He's been a big time prospect for many years.

But his NFL.com analysis says he doesn't "show a strong press at the line" and "can take poor angles in run support" which are two areas he needs to excel in with the Packers. He's a talented athlete, but he's the least impressive of the three cornerbacks I looked at today. I'd prefer Smith or Harris over him.
