Cornerback P.J. Williams was expected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, but those dreams may be shattered since he has been arrested on DUI charges.

Williams had declared for the draft and skipped his senior season at Florida State. His DUI arrest is sure to hurt his draft stock since the draft is only four weeks away.
The talent is there though, since Williams won the defensive MVP award in the 2014 BCS Championship game as the Seminoles defeated Auburn in a thrilling title matchup.
Williams was already behind other cornerback prospects in the draft rankings to begin with, such as Michigan State’s Trae Waynes, Washington’s Marcus Peters, Wake Forest’s Kevin Johnson.
Even fellow Florida State cornerback Ronald Darby may be ranked ahead of him now.
The cornerback has already been in trouble with the law for fleeing the scene of an accident, but he got off with traffic tickets.
Being drafted in the second round appears to be Williams’ best hope at this point due to his latest arrest.
