The New York Giants on Saturday selected Oklahoma State cornerback Rodarius Williams No, 201 overall in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Giants also selected cornerback Aaron Robinson from UCF in Round 3.

Dane Brugler of The Athletic had this to say about Williams in his annual draft guide:

Better known by some as Greedy’s older brother (which is a motivation tool for him), he worked himself into the draftable territory with his improvements as an upperclassman, allowing only 40.9% completions in 2020. Williams was asked to play extensively on an island and appeared to see things quicker with additional reps, proving himself as a catch point disruptor. He has outstanding compete skills, although he tends to rely on his aggressiveness over trusting his technique. Overall, Williams needs to tighten up his timing and finishing skills, but he is experienced and confident and projects best in a Cover 2 scheme.
