CS: What aspect of your game are you trying to improve on this week?

Williams: I’m trying to get off the jam better and improve my blocking. I just want to be consistent all-around.

CS: What cornerback has been the toughest matchup for you so far during practice?

Williams: I’d say Patrick Robinson. He’s been getting in on me a little bit, and he’s breaking on me fast. He’s really quick.

CS: Is it overwhelming at all to have so many NFL scouts in one place, knowing that one bad play or one wrong answer to a question could cost you come April?

Williams: It’s a little different, but it comes with the territory. I don’t mind it though, I can get used to it.

CS: I know you’ve only been in Mobile for a short time, but I’m sure you’ve had a chance to meet with some NFL teams. What teams have you met with, and did any team show more interest than another?

Williams: I’ve been meeting with a lot of scouts in the lobby [of the players hotel], and I met with so many teams. But, the New England Patriots stood out to me. They were really in depth during my interview. They had me writing down routes and everything. They were pretty intense with me. The other teams were just asking me questions about my background, my family, and what makes me a good receiver, and they wanted to get a sense of my personality.

CS: Was there a lot more chalk talk with the other teams, or was it just general background checks?

Williams: It was just background checks with the other teams, but the Patriots got down and dirty with me.
