Before They Were Buffalo Bills: Aaron Williams

Before the Longhorns and Bills, Aaron Williams was making plays for McNeil High School.

The Buffalo Bills secondary struggled last year when Aaron Williams was out of the lineup. Now that he's back and healthy, he'll be expected to help Buffalo's secondary in 2016. To his credit, Williams said he has learned from his neck surgery and after talking with assistant defensive backs coach Ed Reed, Williams understands he doesn't always have to be going for big hits.

“I need to get out of that mindset of always trying to blow up receivers left and right," Williams said to "Yeah everybody loves big hits, but in the end it’s about your health. Just getting my responsibilities down that’s all I need to focus on.”

Williams may be known for his big hits at the pro level, but before this Williams was one of the nation's best cornerbacks at McNeil High School. Scout had Williams as the second best cornerback recruit in the nation during his high school career and it's easy to see why. The video above comes from Williams' junior year with the Mavericks. Watch the then-cornerback in action as he stops multiple plays from going anywhere.
