Negatory Senior. You have Bears drafting Cradele Jones in the third round in 2016. And now you have them taking Watson in the first round??? Leonard Fournette is a better pick, with Forte likely to retire soon.
It's nice to have a draft order set and the Senior Bowl behind us (other all-star games, too, I suppose). The combine is the other big event of the offseason, so we really are halfway to the draft. Sort of.
Summary: Aaron Williams is a skilled player who just needs a team to put him in the right position to succeed. His lack of speed puts him at risk as a pure cornerback, and his inability to intercept the football is troubling for a projected move to safety. On the plus side, he definitely has proven he can contribute on special teams, which NFL coaches ask their young cornerbacks to do. Williams has blocked four punts and can return them as well. His size justifies being drafted early. Now, he needs to tack on some muscle because his best asset will be taking on the bigger, physical receivers in the NFL.
Player Comparison: Antrel Rolle. The most obvious reason for this comparison is that Rolle was drafted as a cornerback and moved to safety. Arizona overlooked his lack of speed and took him No. 8 overall. This is not going to be the case with Williams obviously. Both players are athletic with quick feet and physical enough to take on big receivers.
