Summary

Williams did an adequate job in the lead role at inside backer in 2018 but his average at best cover skills were somewhat of a handicap for the team. The coaching staff was able to mask some of the deficiency by having Williams blitz often and by using extra safeties on passing downs. Williams was a good fit when working in a complimentary role next to Ryan Shazier before his injury. With Devin Bush expected to assume the lead role, Williams may once again be the sidekick. What muddies the water here is the addition of Mark Barron who is all but certain to have a significant role on passing downs and may land the starting job. There is no way to know what kind of production to expect from Williams until we get a better idea what his role will be. (May 16)
