4. Florida State CB, P.J. Williams
If you’ve read some of my draft analysis over the past two months you know how much I love Florida State’s P.J. Williams. He was yet another guy in the 3rd-round the Giants passed on that could go on to have a really solid pro career.
Williams just has that Seattle Legion of Boom thing going on. He doesn’t mind sticking his nose in run support or laying out a receiver to cause an incomplete pass. He’s an island guy who loves being put in 1 on 1 press coverage where he has the ability to cover the slot as well as an outside receiver.
Having anything that replicates Seattle’s secondary is never a bad thing. They bring a swagger unmatched by just about anyone else. The Giants still seem to have a question mark at their nickel corner position. Jayron Hosley has proven nothing in his short career and Trumaine McBride barely even played last season due to injury. You could never have too many corners these days.
