I love his aggressiveness and the way he throws his body around. He showed decent cover skills from what I saw of senior week practices. Actually reminds me a little of Brian Dawkins. What do you think of him and where could he go?

Duke, in many ways, is comparable to Jonathan Cyprien, who has generated a great deal of buzz recently. Williams has some character question marks, but I would consider him worthy of going in the first two rounds.

I looked this up awhile back. Unless there's more to it, the only character thing I found was that he didn't pay his traffic ticket and it turned into his DL and registration expiring. And then he let his insurance lapse.

Not as polished as Vaccaro or Swearinger in man coverage - but shows some promise (see INT in the Bowl game). Very active and can hit. I really like him and think he's a top 100 talent - not sure his stock is that high though...

I don't know about Duke. I think he's a 4th or 5th round pick at this point. I think he's overly aggressive to the point of possibly hurting himself or his team. From what I've seen he really needs to learn to keep his head up. Whenever he makes any contact (to make a hit or to take on a blocker) he seems to dip his head and shoulder.

Williams also looks like a mid 4.5 runner to me. He does play fast, but mostly looks fast going downhill. Jury is out whether he can cover the deep half with anything close to similar aggressiveness when the ball is in the air. He also doesn't have very good ball skills at all.

On the positive, scouts really like his man coverage skills, potentially could help out as a slost defender. He seems to have pretty good agility and flexibility too.
