Unfazed by his draft slide, P.J. Williams sets his sights on winning the Saintsí nickel cornerback role

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He needs the desire to be the starter. Maybe that's why he fell in the draft....

I don't think he fell because of his "desire" maybe off the field issues, how can you question his will and passion for the game?

Re: Unfazed by his draft slide, P.J. Williams sets his sights on winning the Saintsí nickel cornerback role

reason he fell?

As usual end of the season over hype. 2nd round skill set not first
Florida St is not known for producing discipline secondary players. free lances a lot
Off the field issues. plenty off ????? with the kid. but like ALL FSU players convictions are hard to get

I see Patrick Robinson skill set without the injury history. I think he has better instinct and reactions than PR.

What we have a solid slot prospect that might have enough quick twitch to his game to slide outside. now does he have NFL Instincts? good chance he does. very good chance.

Only problem is he's never played in the slot.

Thats got me wondering... whats the main trait that differentiates slot CB versus perimeter CB?

I know perimeter CB's have the sideline to help, and usually cover the elite WR's but slot guys must be prepared for left/right/short/deep usually by a cat quick Lance Moore type who gets a head start before being engaged by a CB.

And I wonder if it's really hard for a CB who played perimeter in college to adjust to playing the slot?

I really have no idea.

I would guess that short area quickness is probably the biggest reason as far as physical attributes go. Like you pointed out, the guys they're covering tend to be that type of player.
