The first two players on the list that Miami will have to contend with are LSU linebacker Devin White who is ranked 75th and Williams. The game between Miami and the Tigers could be a low scoring one. Both have excellent defenses.

White sets the tone for the LSU defense with his speed according to his profile by Sports Illustrated. White finished 12th in the country last season with 133 tackles. Only 37 of those were solo. He also had 14.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

Williams has the perfect size to play cornerback in the NFL. The 6’2 redshirt Freshman finished tied for fourth in the nation last season with six interceptions. Malik Rosier is going to have to be aware of where Williams is throughout the game to keep the interceptions to a minimum.

Entering his third season in college Williams will be eligible for the 2019 NFL Draft. CBS Sports.Com projects Williams to be the eighth pick in the draft next spring.

The Hurricanes have over a month before they play another game against a team with players ranked in the top 100. Florida State comes to Hard Rock Stadium October 6. Miami ended a seven game losing streak in Tallahassee last season.

The Seminoles come to Hard Rock Stadium this year. The Hurricanes enter 2018 with a nine game home winning streak.
