Shawn Williams, SS, Georgia

University of Georgia strong safety Shawn Williams could prove to be a rookie starter once entering the NFL given his contributes in run support and coverage range.

Williams is very aggressive in his style of play and looks to be at his best when running downhill towards the football. Ran very well at the NFL Combine, posting a 4.46 40-yard dash. Took on a vocal leadership role with the Bulldogs defense. Some measurables are below-average, such wingspan and hand size. Will likely struggle against bigger, more physical tight ends. Possesses enough speed to not get beat deep while also sticking with slot receiver man to man. Can easily come down and cover quicker players out of the slot or backfield.

Very good pursuit angles. Tackles with good, clean technique. Diagnoses plays a step ahead of his teammates. Will rarely come down with interceptions. Adequate burst and closing speed. Keeps the play in front of him and seems to time his pass breakups on deep routes just at the right moment. Strong, well-built. Near-maxed out frame.
