Nate Williams Scouting Report
Nate Williams
Nate Williams - Washington (HT: 6-0 - WT: 211)
Combine 40: 4.71 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 17 of 35

Positives: Has good height and above-average bulk for the position... Is a strong in-the-box safety, likes to fill hard and make hits... Is a good leader in the secondary, well-respected by coaches and teammates, leads by example and by playing hard every down... Excellent tackling numbers in college, recorded 274 total tackles, including 105 tackles in 2010... Good wrap-up tackler with good technique, lowers pad level well and drives ball carriers back... Is fairly disciplined when lining up deep in the secondary, plays best when he can keep the play in front of him... Has a high motor, plays with passion, could make a very good special teams performer at the next level.

Negatives: Not especially fast... Not a ball-hawking safety, only recorded one career interception at Washington... Is good in run support in the box, but doesn't have the recognition skills and instincts to be a good coverage safety from the box... Not a man-to-man safety in any sense, coverage skills are too raw, is not fluid enough to run with most tight ends in coverage... Does not have great range, not a center-fielder safety in the NFL.
