The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2017 season.

Kieron Williams

6-1  |  195  |  Senior  |  S

Williams had a strong 2016 season, starting nine games and finishing with 69 tackles and five interceptions, including the game-clinching pick against Minnesota.

He was NU’s No. 3 safety in spring after Joshua Kalu moved from cornerback to be paired with Aaron Williams. Kieron Williams should play often, but he may not match his production from 2016.
