Cornerback Joejuan Williams, Vanderbilt

Sure, the Bears don’t need a starter at cornerback. But, Joejuan Williams possesses just about everything you’d want in a starter at the NFL level. He’d have more than enough time to learn, develop even further under Pagano, and contribute in various spots elsewhere.

Williams is enormous for a cornerback. He stands 6-foot-3, weighs in at 210 pounds and has impressive length. The one thing you could say he lacks is elite speed, but he’s strong enough to stick with most receivers in press coverage.

If you recall Kyle Fuller during his rookie season, one of the biggest knocks on him was his decision-making (or lack thereof) with his back to the ball. This is something Williams has been criticized for as well, but also a situation he has the ability to learn and become comfortable with. As I said, he wouldn’t be asked to step in and start, and learning from Fuller and Prince Amukamara, while Pagano leads him, would be an ideal situation.

His best trait has to be the amount of plays made on the ball over the last couple of years. Williams’ ball skills are tremendous, as he has a combined 23 pass breakups over the last two seasons alone. In 2018, he also picked off four passes.
