Damarion Williams currently plays as a cornerback for the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens. He was born on July 15, 1998.
At Houston, he played collegiate football. Williams was chosen by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft (141st overall).
Williams, who is 5-foot-10 and weighs 182, plays bigger than his frame as a tenacious cornerback who is likely to make Ravens fans think of Tavon Young.
He disrupts wide receivers at the line of scrimmage using a hard press coverage jam, and he doesn’t back down when facing larger targets.
He can mimic receivers with good quickness. Williams is a capable run defender who heads coach Dana Holgorsen referred to as an “absolute warrior.”
Williams played a large amount of time at outside cornerback at Houston, as well as inside, deep safety, and in the box.
Given his size and adept tackling, he would be most suited for slot work in the NFL and ought to contend for that position in Baltimore, especially in light of Young’s departure.Despite having grown up in Miami, a city that is known for its high school football scene, Williams was a non-star recruit.
The issue was exacerbated by the fact that he didn’t begin participating in organized football until his junior year of high school.
He claimed that growing up, he only ever played streetball. Due to his low recruiting, Williams started at Highland Community College. As a sophomore, he established himself by recording a nation-high 17 pass breakups and seven interceptions.
He made a move to Houston, where he played three seasons and truly stood out as a senior, compiling 63 tackles, including three for loss, ten passes deflected, and three interceptions.
