Alabama DT Jesse Williams bumps up his draft stock at Crimson Tide’s Pro Day
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 14, 2013
As it has been through the last few years, the Alabama Crimson Tide football team is putting a lot of potential and sure-fire first-round prospects out on the market. This year, we could see another four taken in the first round, and if defensive tackle Jesse Williams has anything to say about it, he's going to be one of them. Jesse Williams is inching closer to the first round. In 2012, there were four Alabama players selected in the first round, and eight overall in the draft. You'll also see him as a goal-line fullback, and at Alabama's Pro Day on Wednesday, Williams flashed every bit of the athleticism that shows up on tape and is highly unusual for a man used to crashing in straight over a center. At the Alabama campus, Williams posted 40-yard dash times in the 4.84/4.92 range after missing the 40 at the combine due to a knee injury. What Williams has got is a load of athletic potential, though he's still putting the finishing touches together.
