2. Joejuan Williams, Vanderbilt
"The Houston Texans could also use a player with the abilities of Vanderbilt’s Joejuan Williams who also has a second-to-third round grade on him during the 2019 NFL draft process."
While at Vanderbilt the past three seasons on the field, Williams has put up come nice numbers, especially his junior season, which was his final season with the Commodores. In 2018 Williams played in 13 games where he had 61 total tackles (48 solo) with two tackles for loss, four interceptions and 13 passes defensed. Williams for his career played 34 games and had 25 passes defensed, plus he had a forced fumble as a sophomore.
NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote in a draft preview of Williams the following about his abilities of becoming a solid player in the NFL:
"“If the technique catches up with the traits, the play demeanor and talent should make him a solid NFL starter.”"
With the Texans having a solid defense for most of the 2018 season, placing in a player like Williams in the defense could help, as he wouldn’t be expected to be a superstar day one. He could be a player who could have quality games, while still learning on the job at the NFL level, but be productive along the way.
Look at how fast safety Justin Reid developed with the Texans last year after being drafted in the third round, if that could happen with Williams, the Texans could build a very strong and young secondary through the draft in just two seasons.
