SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!!
Williams is a big, thick body who sure looks the part. He has an awesome level of production. Moves pretty well for a big guy. He relies on good to very good power as a bull rusher to collapse the pocket. He uses a swim move effectively.
His run defense is his greatest asset to the due to his build, strength and ability to locate the football. Williams has a good burst off the snap to explode into the offensive lineman. He is very tough to move off the line of scrimmage, as he naturally sprawls his feet, keeps his pads low and has the upper-body strength to hold up even to double-teams.
His strength is arguably his best trait.
He has a low center of gravity due to a thick, wide lower body which helps in the leverage battle up front. Good use of hands and good upper-body strength to stack and shed in the running game.
Dan Williams would provide a huge boost to Oakland’s black hole at Nose Tackle. This defense could be very good if the run defense improves and stopping the run is Williams’ calling card. Adding a monster like Williams in the middle will free up Seymour and company to do some serious damage.
