One of the top cornerback prospects in the NFL Draft has been hit with a DUI just one month away from Draft Day.

Florida State's P.J. Williams was arrested early Friday morning for driving under the influence in Leon County, according to the NFL Network:

This will cause Williams' Draft stock to take a big hit with just under 30 days until the first round kicks off. He was in the running to be a mid-to-late first-round pick, but he'll almost certainly fall to at least the second round now, if not further. The Bengals have been careful taking chances on guys like Williams in the first round, but he might be someone to watch now that he'll likely be available on Day 2.

The 6-0, 194-pound Williams' career highlight was his performance in the 2014 BCS title game, in which he grabbed an interception along with seven tackles against Auburn,

This past season, Williams was fifth on the team with 74 tackles, including 6.5 for a loss. He finishes his career with 123 total tackles and four interceptions.
