Bio

Williams’ selection (No. 145 overall) in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft marked the second-straight former California Golden Bear picked by the Chargers, following the selection of wide receiver Keenan Allen in the third round.                  

Williams tossed his hat into the NFL ring after only three seasons at Cal, including a 2012 junior campaign in which he earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 and team MVP honors. His 2012 statistics included career highs in interceptions (three), total passes defensed (13), tackles (80) and tackles for loss (seven).                 

Williams actually caught the eye of Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco in 2011, when the former Colts Director of Player Personnel had ventured to “The Big Game” in Palo Alto to scout Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Early in the game, Williams jumped an out route thrown by Luck, picking off the pass and returning it 45 yards to the Stanford four-yard line. Even though he was just a sophomore, that play stuck in the back of Telesco’s mind. Luck, meanwhile, went on to be selected by the Colts with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

TRANSACTION HISTORY: Fifth-round pick (145), April 27, 2013...Placed on Reserve-Injured list on August 26, 2013.

COLLEGE: Honorable mention All-Pac-12, Bear Backers MVP on defense and team’s Most Valuable Defensive Back as junior...Pac-12 Defensive Player of Week after interception and four pass breakups vs. Washington State in 2012...Bob Simmons Award as Most Valuable Freshman on Defense in 2010...finished career with 150 tackles, six interceptions, nine tackles for loss, 25 pass breakups, 31 total passes defensed, sack and three forced fumbles...redshirted in 2009 ...played at Cal from 2010-12...sociology major.

PERSONAL: Born in Dallas, Tex....two-time second-team Class 5A All-State at Skyline High in Dallas...invited to play in Under Armour All-America All-Star Game following senior campaign...first-team all-district as junior after helping guide squad to 12-2 mark and 5A Region II District 11 title.
