“I’ve played corner, I’ve played safety, I’ve played nickel and then when you see me on the special teams side, not only am I a returner, but I block punts, kicks, made big plays on kickoff, but it all translates,” Williams said. “My elusiveness and agility on the return team able to show that I can be in the backfield as a running back.”
