    Rodarius Williams is the older brother of Cleveland Browns cornerback Greedy Williams. He has managed to stay healthy since taking over the starting spot as a redshirt freshman. Understanding how to use his length to his advantage, Williams is very aggressive with his technique in off-man coverage. Mixing up his approach quite a bit, he incorporates a blend of off-coverage, but he loves to surprise wideouts by executing a one-hand jam. His length causes issues for targets and it’s a nuisance to deal with throughout the duration of games. Smooth in and out of his breaks, he remains low in his pedal but can jab-step hard into the ground to get out of his breaks quickly when matching the movements of targets. His opportunities with playing press-man coverage were spread out, but because of the uptempo passing offenses, he was afforded chances with playing off coverage. Because of the fear of vertical threats, he was surprised to see routes thrown in the underneath areas. When they were thrown in those areas, he was reluctant to react quickly to them due to the fear of falling victim to double moves or multi-level concepts. He often remained in a slow pedal, but his reactions became extremely slow due to these types of predicaments.
