The Chiefs Select D-2 Cornerback Joshua Williams in the 4th Round

 27 replies

It’s day 3 of the draft and it’s becoming harder (although not impossible) to find top talent, and sometimes that means going to the small schools. Williams is from Fayetteville State, and is another addition to what is now a crowded defensive back room.

“One of the premier small-school prospects in this class. Height/weight/athleticism combo. Speed is a little lacking. Mirrored outstandingly in college. Will face steep learning curve in terms of talent he’ll face. Chiefs had to add more CB talent. (Chris Trapasso)”
Grade B+

I think he’s a drop-in replacement for Ward.

Yeah, this tall guy should be strictly outside CB, and McDuffie should be able to play all over the place.

First guy that doesn’t have a nasty side to him. Definitely can’t say that Veach didn’t try to improve the defense.

What I mean is that all of the other picks were heat seeking missiles.

Every group needs a laid-back guy or two. Can’t have 53 berserkers.

Best line I’ve read over this draft coverage.

I like this pick a lot. Long, tall CB with decent speed and excellent athleticism. Should be able to replace everything Ward did plus a higher ceiling.

Dane Brugler’s #12 CB prospect, 3rd round grade.

We have now replace Ward, HB (at least physically, not counting the leadership skills), and upgraded on Sorensen.

Suddenly our secondary could be a strength.

He ran shuttle and 3-cone at his pro-day. SS time was meh at 4.47s, not great but also not bad for a guy with his height/build. But 3-cone time (which I think is extremely important for DBs) was excellent at 6.95s.

He has all the physical ability. If he’s got a decent competitive nature, then he should be fine.

Supposedly one of the top small school prospects

Now add some more beef to the D-line and I think I’ll be happy with this draft.

Some interesting older guys if we’re just looking for a one to two year rental on a friendly deal. Not overly familiar with the younger guys.
