NFL Draft Profile: Florida State CB P.J. Williams

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of 200 prospects, including what the scouts around the league are saying and video interviews with each player.

P.J. Williams (CB), Florida State

6’0” | 194 lbs.

2014 stats:

74 tackles, 1 sack, 1 INT, 1 forced fumble

Selection:

3rd round, No. 78 overall (New Orleans Saints)

What scouts are saying:

"Cover cornerback with the talent to play on an island, and the swagger to regroup and forget when beaten. Williams can cover outside or from the slot, and has potential to come in and start right away for an aggressive man-cover defense. Williams had some issues recovering when beaten deep and may end up making a move to safety on the next level. He has the talent to be a capable NFL starter at either position." - NFL.com's Lance Zierlein

"Demonstrates an impressive combination of speed, fluidity and physicality that make him an ideal outside corner prospect for the next level. Good size for the position and not shy about sticking his body into the middle of the action. Will slip or fight through blocks and aggressively pursues ball carriers to deliver forceful hits." - CBS Sports' Rob Rang and Derek Stephens

"Physical down the field and could take time to acclimate to NFL illegal-contact rules. Stays on high-side down the field, opening himself to easy comebacks. Appears to lose some interest when asked to cover in zone. Won't be able to consistently jam savvy NFL receivers off the line. Motor runs hot and cold. Shows up ready when stakes are high, but puts it in cruise control and play looks less motivated against lesser opponents. Inconsistent to step downhill and attack the run." - NFL.com's Lance Zierlein

One Chicago restaurant is using Mitch Trubisky to help explain social distancing

Every once in a while, a moment comes along that so perfectly captures the essence of a city – its energy, its ethos. These brief moments make up the identity of the city. They're the driving heartbeat that connects a vast network of wonderfully unique cultures while simultaneously creating an ongoing sense of community. 

Anyway, here's Chicago's moment:

It's an incredible commitment to one of the city's longest-running bits. Hell hath no fury like a beleaguered Bears fan. Just imagine what sort of Nick Foles jokes are waiting for us down the road!
