Patriots.com Draft Profile: DB Joejuan Williams

2500x1406-20190430-joejuan-profile

Round 2, Pick No. 13 (45 overall): Joejuan Williams, DB, Vanderbilt

Hometown: Nashville, TN

STRENGTHS

Uncommon size for his position; plays aggressively for contested balls; surprisingly agile for such a tall player at his position; reliable tackler who often helps out in run support; overcomes mistakes without losing confidence.

WEAKNESSES

Can give up as many big plays as he makes; can be overly physical with receivers at times; inconsistent technique downfield with his back to the ball; size is a potential vulnerability versus smaller receivers.

PERSONAL

Overcame difficult childhood circumstances to become an all-state high school player before joining Vanderbilt, where he turned in a second-team All-SEC performance as a junior.

COMPARABLE NFL PLAYER

Trumaine Johnson, CB, New York Jets: A tall, physical cornerback who cashed in during free agency this offseason.
