Aaron Williams Scouting Report
Aaron Williams
Aaron Williams - Texas (HT: 5-11⅞ - WT: 204)
Combine 40: 4.52 - Position Rank: 5 of 45

Positives: Reasonably good length for a cornerback, has average height and arm length... Possesses pretty good speed, will be able to run with most receivers in the NFL... Explosive lower body, had a 107" broad jump and 37.5" vertical at the combine... Is a very athletic player, flows well to the ball in run defense and zone coverage... Has quick and fluid hips, flips hips and run with receivers well, which is a necessity with the amount of plays he lines up five to ten yards off receivers... Does a good job reading receivers' eyes, snaps head around quickly and finds the ball with relative ease... Has quick feet and a solid backpedal, stays pretty low, which allows him to change directions quickly... Loves to tackle, will come up and put his nose on the ball, is adequate at blitzing from the corner... Has good body control and ball skills, possesses above-average hands and leaping ability... Instincts are solid, reads and reacts quickly, is able to keep track of coverage duties when eyes are in the backfield.

Negatives: Production has been all over the board, has not recorded a lot of tackles or an overwhelming number of interceptions (four), but has forced six fumbles in three years... Frame looks a little thin, could stand to bulk up a little bit to match up better with bigger receivers and be a bigger threat in run defense in the NFL... Sometimes turns body the wrong direction when gets beat, is susceptible to double moves sharp cuts... Will take bad angles when tackling, plays fast, but a little out of control at time... Is a good man-to-man defender, but does not play bump-and-run as often as many other corners, will need to polish up press technique to be highly effective at the next level.
