It wasn’t that long ago that Colorado defensive ends coach Nick Williams played college football. Because of this, he knows how to attract players’ attention.

An aspiring young coach already known for his recruiting successes, Williams routinely screens young player films of NFL stars.

“I remember being a player,” said Williams, who played for Georgia from 2008 to 2012. “(During film sessions) I wasn’t really locked in or you didn’t have my undivided attention because I was young and distracted — until you turn on an NFL tape because I saw myself there.” Watching NFL movies got me hooked.

“I know, hey, if you take a defensive ending and turn on Von Miller (film), man, you’ve got her attention now. That’s where they’re ultimately going, so I try to use NFL tape as much as possible.”
