Aaron Williams scouting report

Aaron Williams CB Texas
Ht: 6’0″

Wt: 204

Impressive size for a corner. Above average strength. A physical player that isn’t afraid to mix it up with receivers at the line of scrimmage. Fearless in man coverage; willing to play close to the line of scrimmage and trusts his ability to match up his speed/strength with any receiver.
Overaggressive. Makes too many mistakes because he trusts his raw ability too much. Doesn’t have great instincts; bites on fakes and gets beat easily by effective route runners. Below average tackler; mostly because of a lack of effort.
Williams has the skills to be a starter at the next level, but his game needs work. He’s capable of playing immediately, but he’ll get beat from time to time. If he puts in the effort he could develop into an above-average starter, but he’s more of a project than you’d like from a 1st-round pick. He could come off the board in the first 32 picks, but I would prefer to wait until the 2nd round.
