[Jack Williams]

The Denver Broncos select defensive back Jack Williams in the 4th round of the NFL draft (119th overall). Williams hails from Kent St. and grades as a nickel or dime cornerback. Read more on Williams here.

So far today we’ve taken OG and CB… interesting choices. I still expect the Broncos to take a RB and DT with their remaining picks.

  • E. Halsey Miles

    Well, it’s been a known quantity that Foxworth and Paymah could both leave at the same time; both want to be starters in the league, and both may have the ability to do that. But neither of them is getting ahead of Dre Bly any time soon. And we do need a little more depth at defensive back, so there’s definitely some logic there. That said, from what I’m reading this guy is going to be a project and we’re not likely to see much from him other than special teams for at least a couple of years.

    i think this is another good pick. a darrent williams type of CB. small, compact, very fast, great vertical (41 inches). possibly another good return man. plus could be a good project player, because lets face it, Bly and Bailey are not getting younger.

  • Sabo

    Kent State, not Kansas State…. Mayock seems to like this pick.

  • rod

    Saw him Williams play quite a bit at Kent. Played his senior year on two bum ankles and still almost logged 100 takles. he was kent’s #1 DB and covered the opposing team’s #1 WR most every time. Looking forward to watching him on Sundays.
