Alabama’s Williams perfect prospect for 3-4 teams

INDIANAPOLIS–Defensive lineman Jesse Williams is a perfect candidate for a team in need of a defensive lineman in a 3-4 scheme.

“I like stopping the run, being physical. The 3-4 is suited for me,” Williams said at the scouting combine.

A native of Australia who used junior college football as a stepping stone to Alabama and two national championships, measured out at 6-3, 323, and figures to impress scouts with his dominant strength.

“I just want to get through the medical stuff and then show them how I move,” he said.

Williams’ body is covered by tattoos that “are little reminders of things I’ve had to get through,” and he spoke with a thick Australian accent. He’s a prospect to be drafted late in the first round, but he could move his stock upward with an athletic workout on Monday that would also project him as a defensive end in a 3-4.
