- Huff's good, but NO WAY do I take him over Jimmy. If we can find some safeties, then we'd have the badest secondary in the league with him and DeLo.
"In my opinion he's a corner who, down the road, can become a safety," said Atlanta coach Jim Mora, a former secondary coach. "If he runs a fast 40 that will confirm it; if he doesn't, maybe you have to rethink it. But my initial thought is that he's a very good corner; someone who can do anything."
The University of Texas' Michael Huff is another defensive back who can play both positions, though most persons envision him as a safety -- and that includes Mora. Huff was the winner of the Jim Thorpe award, given annually to the nation's top defensive back; Williams was a Thorpe finalist.
Don't bother asking Williams who is better.
In fact, when he was asked what a club should do if it had the option of choosing him or former Virginia Tech cornerback DeAngelo Hall -- the eighth pick of the 2004 draft -- Williams was as quick with an answer as he is to the football.
"Me," he said. "Because I'm much bigger, more physical and I can play two positions for you. I feel great about myself. I just want to come in and play right away."
