4. CB Brandon Williams
After the NY Giants’ cornerback room became decimated over the course of the offseason, Dave Gettleman turned to 2016 third-round pick, Brandon Williams, in an attempt to sure up the secondary.
A former runningback at Texas A&M that converted to defensive back midway through his college career, Williams surely has uptapped potential put he hasn’t been able to show any of that off during his NFL career.
Durnig his three years with the Arizona Cardinals, Williams never played more than 22% of defensive snaps in a season and that was during his rookie year. The results couldn’t have been very encouraging as he played just a single defensive snap the following year in 2017 despite being healthy for all 16 games, and just 8% of snaps in 2018.
An injury during training camp in the final year of his rookie deal in 2019 landed him on the chopping block as the Cardinals gave up on the 6’0” cornerback, and after the NY Giants traded for Isaac Yiadom and signed Logan Ryan this week there doesn’t appear to be a spot for him with Big Blue anymore, either.
