Cal CB Steve Williams shows impressive speed

California v USC Getty Images

Among those who are raising their stock on the last day of the NFL Scouting Combine is Cal cornerback Steve Williams, who showed off great speed in the 40-yard dash.

Williams was unofficially timed at 4.25 seconds in the 40, and although those unofficial times usually turn out to make players look a little bit faster than they really were, there’s no doubt at all that Williams is among the fastest players in this year’s draft. Williams was the only cornerback to break 4.3 seconds in the unofficial timing.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Williams started 28 games in three seasons at Cal before deciding to leave school early to declare for this year’s draft. He’s generally been considered a mid- to late-round pick, but today’s performance will have teams taking a closer look. He’s one of the best athletes available, at any position.

    Jeff Tedford might not have made Cal a good team but can’t argue with how many players he put in the NFL

    Steve Williams had some injuries which cut into his time, including playing with a cast. Still, he hits hard and can definitely keep up with the burners.
