Draft Scout Shawn Williams News
05/23/13 - S Shawn Williams, a third-round pick out of Georgia, signed with the Cincinnati Bengals. Terms were not disclosed.
Williams finished second on the Bulldogs with 98 tackles last season after leading the team with 72 in 2011.
The pick of a safety in the third round came later than expected for the Bengals, but Williams has played both strong and free safety. He also made the calls in the defensive backfield, which is something that the Bengals were looking for. He is a physical hitter and should contend for the starting spot at strong with Taylor Mays and Jeromy Miles.

03/28/13 - 2013 Georgia Pro Day: Representatives from all 32 NFL teams gathered at Georgia’s pro day on Thursday for a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in approximately 40-degree temperatures. Shaun Williams, SS (6-0, 215) - Williams was measured, stood on his numbers from the combine and went through position drills. Williams is not a good-looking athlete, but the best way to describe him is as a “football player,” meaning that while he doesn’t work out well he does shine when it’s 11-on-11 on the field. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
12/04/12 - 12/4/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: 1. Shawn Williams, SS, Georgia...The Bulldogs' defense has numerous players who will be starring on Sundays next season or in the near future, Williams included. But against Alabama, it wasn't a strong performance for the Georgia strong safety. He finished with nine tackles and was involved in several plays, but also left some production on the field and several times he went backwards when attempting to tackle Alabama s running backs Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon.
Williams showed good downhill speed when attacking the run, but he slowed his feet upon contact on several occasions and found himself caught out of position, making the tackle tougher. With near-linebacker size (6-1, 217), he has made some punishing hits over his career, but against the Crimson Tide, he played too hesitant at the point of attack.
Williams called out the defense earlier this season for being too soft and he could have taken some of his own advice in this contest as he appeared to playing to not make mistakes instead of aggressively finishing plays. Williams still has top-100 potential for next April, but his performance in the SEC Championship Game won t help that cause. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/29/12 - Safety Shawn Williams, who called out his defensive teammates for being soft earlier this season, had six tackles, including one for loss vs. Florida. - The Sports Xchange
