Vanderbilt defensive back Joejuan Williams has shot up NFL draft boards recently. With his stock rising, it is likely that he will be a day one or day two pick in the NFL Draft.
NFL draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah originally had Williams projected to be a third round selection, citing that he has the talent to potentially be an NFL starter, but needs to be paired with a coach who can improve his game.
However, in his final mock draft before the NFL Draft, Jeremiah had Williams being selected by the Los Angeles Chargers in the first round.
Here are five teams that could potentially select him in the NFL Draft:

The Chiefs have shown strong interest in Williams throughout the off-season.
Vanderbilt CB Joejuan Williams said he’s had both formal and informal meetings with the Chiefs and they went really well. I’ll have more on that later.

Kansas City gave up the second most pass yards per game last season (273.4 yards), which was only behind Cincinnati’s 275.9 yards per game.
With that in mind, the Chiefs will need to address their defense woes in this years draft — Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes is not likely to have as spectacular of a season as he did last year.
