Alfie's Player Ranking 33 out of 100
Projected Round: 1-2

Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 33rd ranked player, Texas defensive back Aaron Williams.

Height: 5-11

Weight: 204lbs

PROS: Good size with good length and long arms for a cornerback. Good, not great, speed. Flows well in cover defense. Does a good job of watching receivers eyes and tracking the football in the air. Has a good backpedal with quick feet. Reads and reacts well while in coverage. Best fit will likely be at free safety where he can play centerfield in the NFL.

CONS: Not a whole lot of production while at Texas, only 4 interceptions in three seasons. Gets beat by double moves and his speed isn’t top notch. Can play out of control and run himself out of plays. Average in man to man, doesn’t play bump and run coverage well.
