In the 5th round of the 2013, the San Diego Chargers took advantage of their own backyard. The former Golden Bear was the second player the Chargers took out of Cal following the previous pick of Keenan Allen. Cornerback Steve Williams will look to be a great addition to the Chargers’ secondary. Now to what you all have been waiting for.

At 5’9″ Steve is shorter than the ideal height for a corner but his leaping ability makes up for it. He has great, fluid hips. His speed and quickness allows him to keep up with the faster receivers. Williams reads routes exceptionally well and great ability to break on routes. In 37 games (25 starts), he broke up 25 passes, 6 interceptions and three fumbles.
Steve Williams will make himself known either as a nickel/dime corner or on special teams. Either way, I believe he will bring immediate impact to the San Diego Chargers.
For those who have yet to see our newest defensive back, take a look.
