Despite not having registered a single snap in the NFL, the Cincinnati Bengals have high expectations for former Georgia Bulldogs safety Shawn Williams. He’ already being projected to be the opening-day starting strong safety, and he may end up getting the most playing time this year of any Bengals rookie, despite being the fourth player the team drafted.

Williams will be the 7th player on the Bengals roster from the University of Georgia. I believe that Williams will be another mid-round gem out of “UGA”, who will flourish as a Bengal.

Williams’ hometown is Damascus, Georgia where he played at Early County High School and then accepted a scholarship to play between the hedges. During his collegiate career, Williams made 30 starts at strong safety, and racked up 208 tackles and 4 interceptions.
