Florida State junior cornerback P.J. Williams is on his way to the pros, having announced his intention to declare for the 2015 NFL Draft via Twitter on Tuesday:
I will be taking my talent to the NFL, I wanna thank the NoleNation for some of the best 3 years of my life, the memories will never fade!!— Pj Williams (@PjWilliams_26) January 6, 2015
A regular member of the Seminoles' secondary rotation as a true freshman and a starter the past two seasons, Williams was named first-team All-ACC in 2014 and earned defensive MVP honors in the 2014 BCS Championship Game win over Auburn. Williams was oustanding in both pass and run defense, ranking fifth on the 2014 Seminoles with 74 tackles and fourth with 6.5 tackles for loss.
The 6-foot, 196-pound Williams is ranked the No. 4 cornerback in the 2015 draft class, according to NFLDraftScout.com; he is expected to go in either the first or second round.
Williams may only be the first of several draft defections for the Seminoles, who are still waiting on decisions from quarterback Jameis Winston, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman, defensive end Mario Edwards, and others.
