NFL Draft 2011, Round 6: Giants Select Jacquian Williams, OLB, South Florida

New, comments

Maybe Jerry Reese really did realize how badly he needed to bolster the Giants' linebacking corps. after all. The Giants selected South Florida outside linebacker Jacquian Williams with their third sixth-round pick and the 202nd pick overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. Just 17 picks earlier, Reese selected Michigan State's Greg Jones, an inside linebacker. Reese is probably also hoping to strike gold again with another South Florida player to go along with last year's top pick, Jason Pierre-Paul.

Here is some information courtesy of NFL Draft Scout on Williams:

2010 ALL-BIG EAST CONFERENCE SECOND TEAM (COACHES): LB Jacquain Williams, USF, Sr., has been selected All-BIG EAST Second Team for the 2010 college football season as selected by a vote of the league's eight head football coaches. In his first season as a starter at linebacker, Williams, who is also a captain, led the team in tackles with 68 and TFL with 9.5. He picked his game up as the season went on and posted 41 tackles, 7.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, an INT and a PBU over the final six games of the regular season.

I'd write more, but the Giants have a seventh-round pick coming. Actually they probably already chose him!
