Anthony Williams said Texas coaches were informed of the decision today. The elder Williams said he and his son consulted with numerous former Longhorns as well as NFL scouts before Aaron made the decision. Anthony said Aaron received a report from the NFL indicating he’d be either a first- or second-round pick. Underclassmen have until Jan. 15 to enter the draft. Williams said his son has not yet signed with an agent but will do so soon. “He feels good about his decision,” the father said. “One of the things I told him as a father is that there are a lot of moving parts to this and he’s got to live with his decision and not look back. He prayed about it and is at peace with it.” - Randy Riggs, The Austin American Statesman

    Williams is our 5th best CB on our junior draft board and should be a second rounder. He has the size (6-1, 195) to play both CB and FS. He also possesses some return skills. He has the speed to keep up with NFL receivers (4.49e), but like most junior prospects will be a bit raw in coverage. He wasn't a big turnover machine and had only 14 career starts coming into his junior season. In fact, until senior CB Chykie Brown suffered a broken forearm in November, Williams was Texas' nickle CB.
