Broncos Pick North Carolina DT Sylvester Williams With First Round Pick

Sylvester Williams

With the 28th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Broncos select North Carolina DT Sylvester Williams.

For all the (justified) hype Sharrif Floyd and Sheldon Richardson have received, Williams is every bit the same level of prospect at DT. He possesses an outstanding first step and excellent instincts, which allow him to constantly penetrate gaps and threaten the backfield.

When playing with proper base and leverage he demonstrates excellent strength at the POA, and uses his hands aggressively to shed blocks. When rushing the passer he flashes a variety of moves utilizes his natural quickness and power, but he tends to rely too much on his first step quickness and arm-over move.

Once he learns to lower his pad level off the ball utilize his full skill set, he will become a highly productive player in almost any defensive scheme.
