Rodarius Williams could become an important player
The New York Giants’ stocked up on cornerbacks during the 2021 NFL Draft and the last one they selected was Rodarius Williams out of Oklahoma State in the sixth round.
Williams is 25 years-old, so he’s a lot more mature than your typical rookie. His defensive coordinator at Oklahoma State, Jim Knowles, says that Williams is the kind of player that NFL teams want on their rosters.
“His maturity is a huge asset,” Knowles told Giants.com. “He’s a little bit older than a normal rookie. It’s definitely a plus because he has been through a lot in his life. He’s overcome a lot personally, and I have seen his growth. I knew he had the talent from the beginning, but I have seen his growth as a mature young man who understands life and what it takes to succeed and the work that needs to go in. That lightbulb went on, so you’re getting a guy who is ready-made and prepared to handle being a professional.”
Williams isn’t expected to earn a starting job right away with so many talented guys ahead of him. So if he’s going to make the Giants’ 53-man roster he will need to do it on special teams.
Now if injuries pile up in the secondary this coming season, Williams could find himself on the field in defensive packages.
