The Jets were putting the moves on in Florida.

According to Tony Pauline, the Jets brass were in Florida wining and dining one of Florida State's finest.

I wrote a report on P.J Williams some time ago, which you can read in full HERE

However my conclusion was that he would be more suited to moving to free safety at the next level, which is why the Jets may be interested in him. I can't imagine the Jets will be looking to take a CB early in the draft, however a safety is another matter all-together.

Here is my conclusion:

I like P.J Williams, I really do. However, I worry about him as a corner at the next level. He's another Kyle Wilson candidate. Plays the ball a lot better in front of him, can be over-aggressive allowing receivers to get in behind and can really improve his tackling. Most of the problems come when his back is to the play, similar to Wilson. If you put him in a position where he can view the field, he uses his speed and instincts to make some plays.

Some are saying he's a sure first rounder. I'm not 100% confident in that. He has some glaring weaknesses in his game that I think may be exposed at the NFL level. However, if switching him to a safety, I think that could really work because of his speed, range and instincts to get to the point of the pass before the receiver. He also comes up and sifts through traffic well, too.

As a first round corner, I'm not that confident that he can make an instant impact. Some team will probably take a chance on him.
