I would take him in the: second round
One sentence bio: Second-team All-SEC in 2018 and led the SEC in passes broken up. Registered 24 passes broken up in 25 games as a starter with four interceptions.
One sentence scouting report: Extraordinarily tall, long and fluid corner with excellent upside as a press corner, but there are concerns about long speed and quickness.
Joejuan Williams is a massive CB out of Vanderbilt (6'2", 207 pounds), and has great speed and fluid hips for his size.— Craig Stout (@barleyhop) February 1, 2019
- Long and aggressive in press
- Flips hips to carry vertical well

How he fits in KC: Williams is somewhat of a unicorn at the cornerback position. He is legitimately closer to 6 feet 4 than he is 6 feet 3. He is the Manute Bol of corners. The rarest of size for cornerbacks. What’s more is the fluidity of hips is wildly impressive for a man of his stature. His biggest concern is his ability to change directions quickly which is as expected with how massive he is. If the Chiefs are going to invest in this Commodore, they’ll need to feature him in a press-heavy scheme that allows him to use his length and size to disrupt the release and timing of the routes. He’s not best utilized in off-coverage so if Spagnuolo isn’t willing to let him play at the line of scrimmage, Williams isn’t a perfect fit. However, it’s entirely possible that the Chiefs see his value and upside and build a plan for him. He’s a tantalizing prospect.
