Dan Williams's Player ProfileThe 2010 draft is one of the deepest in terms of defensive talent in quite some time—especially in the trenches. Tennessee’s season has been somewhat of a disappointment this year. But if it wasn’t for Big Dan Williams plugging up the middle Coach Kiffin’s seat would be a bit hotter.
Reminds us a little of NFL nose tackle Shaun Rogers where he may not consistently show up on the stat sheet or with post-season accolades. Instead he’ll clog up the middle of the field taking on two, sometimes three, opposing lineman or running backs freeing up the skill positions to make plays. Dan Williams isn’t going to overly excite fans of whichever team calls his name but he’s going to please his future coaching staff as a dependable two-down lineman.
A few teams have aging stalwarts in the middle of their defensive line that could be looking to add somebody of William’s character, work ethic and most importantly, sheer size.
