Williams is the older brother of New York Jets rookie Quinnen Williams. The Jaguars selected him with the 98th overall pick, filling an area of need a few weeks before former Pro Bowl linebacker Telvin Smith announced he has no plans to play in 2019.

Williams played in 43 games at Murray State, recording 231 tackles, nine passes breakups, three interceptions and three forced fumbles.
