2011 NFL Draft Results: Bills Select CB Aaron Williams

With the No. 34 overall pick (second round) in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Texas cornerback Aaron Williams.

Cornerback is a pressing depth issue for the Bills. The team only has five to begin with, and both Drayton Florence and Ashton Youboty are scheduled for free agency. In addition, Terrence McGee hasn't played a full 16-game season since his rookie year in 2003, and 2008 first-round pick Leodis McKelvin has not quite lived up to expectations, still struggling with inconsistency.

Williams, a junior, is a big (6'0", 204 pounds), fluid cornerback that has also been projected as a possibility at free safety. An excellent - if not overtly explosive - athlete, Williams is tough and can really hit, and also has solid ball skills, even though he struggled with zero interceptions as a junior. He'll also defend the run - Mel Kiper really sings his praises in this department - and has NFL bloodlines and very strong program pedigree.

This is a player that is technically raw and in need of refinement, but he projects as an eventual starter at a big need for the Bills. Please leave your thoughts on the pick here, and use this as an open thread for the rest of Round 2, as well.
