He was predicted to go in the 6th round by some, so, very nice indeed to throw him into the lot. He's can play both safety and nickel. One thing you can be sure of is that the Dolphins are doing their due diligence scouring every player to throw into the mix to make this team better. Of course, usually if a team drops a player there is a good reason.

The Miami Dolphins now have 11 cornerbacks to go along with their collection of 13 wide receivers.

The Dolphins claimed cornerback Trill Williams off waivers from New Orleans on Monday, adding to a room with several young players trying to break through.

The 6-2 rookie from Syracuse had four interceptions in 28 college games and opted out after five games last season, opting against trying to continue playing with a torn ligament in his ankle. That ankle injury was affecting his hamstring and his ability to play to his level of expectation, his father told The Syracuse Post Standard last fall.

He signed with the Saints after going undrafted last month but was cut three days later after failing a physical. The Saints planned to re-sign him on Monday but the Dolphins thwarted that by claiming him off waivers, according to Houston-based NFL writer Aaron Wilson.

NFL.COM SCOUTING PROFILE

Trill Williams
Height - 6' 0"
Weight - 208 lbs
Arms - 31 1/8"
Hands - 9"

PLAYER BIO:
Atrilleon "Trill" Williams was named a USA Today first-team pick his senior year at Archbishop Stepinac High School in Yonkers. He made an immediate impact for Syracuse by starting four times in 12 appearances as a true freshman (31 tackles, 2.5 for loss, two interceptions, two pass breakups). Williams started seven of 11 games in 2019, leading the Orange with three forced fumbles while also posting 38 tackles, one interception and three pass breakups. His junior season was shortened by an ankle injury that he underwent surgery to repair in November (24 tackles, one interception returned for a score, five pass breakups in five games, four starts). -- by Chad Reuter

Draft Projection
Round 6

Overview
Defensive back with adequate size to play free safety or as a big nickel near the line of scrimmage. Williams doesn't have the loose lowers or long speed to carry routes down the field, but he plays with adequate route anticipation and coverage burst to handle some off-man and zone duties from nickel. His play attributes could lend themselves to a role as a backup safety but he'll need to elevate his run support to stick around and fight off competition for his spot.

Strengths

Big and long as a nickel defender.
Provides some effectiveness from short zone.
Fairly quick to flip hips and sprint.
Fluidity in his pedal to trigger transition.
Adequate anticipation of break points from off-man coverage.
Burst to close takes him into playmaking territory.
Clues into wideout's eyes to turn and find the football.
Strength to punch and separate from block.
Will gas it into the alley looking to make the big hit.

Weaknesses

Will struggle to maintain feel for route against NFL slot receivers.
Gets feet crossed up by leverage fakes.
Doesn't run well enough in chase mode.
Needs better eye balance on the wide receiver.
Caught flat-footed with eyes into backfield on play-action.
Needs better attention to his positioning for contain duties.
Gives away additional yardage with bad angles to the ball.
Better in angle pursuit than as a downhill tackler.

The signing that turned the 2021 Dolphins into an eventual Superbowl winner.

Think he moves to safety. Wouldn't be shocked if he eventually takes over for Rowe down the road. Has talent just needs to get healthy.
