Cary Williams is listed at 6’1, 190, has long arms, is physical at the line of scrimmage, and likes to play press coverage. Nnamdi Asomugha is listed at 6’2, 210, and made a living playing press coverage. That’s about where the comparisons end. Interestingly, Williams noted that Asomugha is a player he looked up to.
“Y’all might not like this, but I modeled myself after Nnamdi,” Williams said. “He didn’t have much success here… He’s a taller, leaner guy, and a guy that I liked (in terms of) skill set. When he was in Oakland, everybody in here knew he was a force out there… That’s the guy who I watched. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to duplicate that success here, but I plan on doing otherwise.”
