The 2017 NFL Draft is coming at us quickly. The yearly extravaganza will take place in Philadelphia from Thursday, April 27 to Saturday, April 29 this year.
Over the span of three days, a whole host of former college football stars will find new homes where they will hopefully impress during the offseason and make a living playing on Sundays.
Marcus Williams of Utah is a safety who is much better when the ball is in the air than when he is being run at by a ball carrier. Williams is outstanding at diagnosing plays quickly and understanding from formations where a quarterback is likely to go with the ball. If he can improve his defense in the run game, where he gets dragged forward by tacklers way too often, the Willams can be a long term starting safety in the NFL.
