Joshua Williams' favorite players to watch

JF: "Absolutely. Do you have any NFL players that you model your game after or just like to watch?"

JW: "I watch a lot of guys. Darius Slay, of course everyone watches Jalen Ramsey. I'm a big Stephon Gilmore fan. Xavien Howard, Trevon Diggs. I just watch everybody, take a little bit from their game, and try to attribute it to my game."

Exclusive interview with Baylor LB Terrel Bernard: NY Jets interest, Senior Bowl, more

Potential interest from the NY Jets and other teams

JF: "I think every cornerback I ask that question to says Darius Slay. Every single one of them. I don't know if it's that underdog or alpha mentality that he has, but every one of them, without failure, answers Darius Slay. And I can't disagree either.

I know you worked with the Jets at the Senior Bowl. Are there any teams that have shown a little more interest than others that you could potentially see yourself with come draft day?"

JW: "Maybe within the coming week I'll be able to answer that more specifically, but as of right now it's almost like a free-for-all. There's a lot of time and a lot of things that can happen. To pick a name or a team would just be me throwing a dart. I can't think of one specific team that is way more than the others. I will say that speaking with all of these teams, they definitely do their research. They're going to get all of the information out of you that they can. This is probably the most background digging that I've seen in my life. They pulled up stuff from middle school. It's really crazy."
