How is Roy Williams perfect for our system?

The safeties in our system are interchangeable. We really don't have "strong" and "free" safeties. Both are supposed to be able to step up against the run, cover a RB or TE one-on-one, and play "centerfield" as support against deep passes. By making them interchangeable, it makes it difficult for QB's to read what the defense is doing.

Since Roy Williams is weak against the pass, he would not fit our system at all.
