NFL Draft 2013: Sylvester Williams drawing Jaguars interests


The Jacksonville Jaguars spent time with North Carolina defensive lineman Sylvester Williams at the Tar Heels pro day and spent time with him on Monday evening, according to a report by Tony Pauline.

The 6'3", 313 pound Williams has impressed scouts and teams with his athleticism for his size and as a nose tackle is very quick off the snap. In the Jaguars defense going forward it's likely Williams can fit at the one-technique, three-technique, and even the five-technique in heavy run sets.

At the NFL combine Williams clocked a 5.03 40-yard dash, put up 27 reps on the bench press. At his pro day it was noted that Williams looked excellent in his position drills.

Williams isn't necessarily a pass rusher, but he can disrupt in the backfield and collapse the pocket.

Most expect Williams to go in the mid-to-late first round, with the possibility to falling into the second round.
