Marcus Williams, CB, North Dakota State

Williams (5-foot-11, 196 pounds) has good height for a cornerback and has been well coached. He posted a hand-timed 4.57-second 40 and a 35-inch vertical at his pro day.


Marcus Williams, CB, North Dakota State: Williams (5-11, 196 pounds) worked out on March 3 at Minnesota but worked out again here. He ran a 4.57 and 4.60 in the 40 and a 35-inch vertical. He ran the short shuttle in 4.31 and the three-cone drill in 7.31 seconds. He also did individual workouts.

From DraftInsider.net:   Marcus Williams
School: North Dakota State
Position: CB
Positive: Four-year starter who totaled 21 interceptions in his college career. Smooth, fluid cornerback with outstanding ball skills. Displays a good head for the game, effectively diagnoses the play, and shows an explosive burst of closing speed. Mixes it up with receivers, battles throughout the play, and quickly locates the pass in the air. Fluid backpedaling, quick flipping his hips and loses nothing in transition. Shows a terrific burst to the ball out of his plant. Effective kick returner in the past.
Negative: Long speed is a concern. Never proven to be a stout run defender.
Analysis: Williams is a skilled cornerback rarely challenged by opponents and came up big when the ball was thrown in his direction. He's a potential dime back/return specialist at the next level who needs to pick up the tempo of his run defense.
