Marcus Williams NFL Draft Profile
Marcus Williams NFL Draft Profile-S-Utah
Size: 6’1 202lbs
- Great jumper
- Solid tackler
Analysis: Marcus Williams’ NFL resume was written when he walked onto Utah’s campus as a Freshman starting six times (59 tackles, INT, two forced fumbles.) In 2015, he started every game, garnering first-team all-conference (66 tackles, five INT, five pass breakups), and academic all-conference honors (4.0 high school GPA). Williams missed time in 2016 with an injury but still was named second-team All-Pac-12 with 64 tackles, five interceptions and three pass breakups. Athletic and instinctive from high safety. Easy hips with smooth feet in his backpedal. Able to play from deep positioning and still make plays on the ball. Good recognition of quarterback’s intentions gives him a head-start on the throw. Has desired open-field speed to close from hash to sideline. Former basketball player and high-jumper with the leaping ability and timing to win the 50-50 throws. Posted 10 interceptions against 44 targets over last two seasons. Productive tackler and careful finisher. Steps downhill against the run.
- Needs to add some muscle
- Finesse style
- Manipulated by QB’s eyes
Analysis: Marcus Williams needs to add some muscle on his slim frame. More of a finesses safety than hitter. Takes the worst of it in one-on-one tackles. Can be dragged along for additional yardage. Plays with a hitch in his transition from backpedal. Occasionally follows quarterback’s eyes too carefully and can be manipulated.
