Yep transition from DE in college to OLB in the NFL. There would need to be some concern about durability if consideration for ILB is given. Williams injured his ankle early on during preparations for the Senior Bowl. He was unable to play in the game . Williams' tender ankle did not seem to stop him from impressing at the combine, where he led all defensive linemen a time of 4.57 seconds in the 40 and a 38-inch vertical jump. Though, when it came time for Williams to work out for scouts again at UConn's Pro day, issues with both his groin and his back limited his ability to post the times he wanted to in the agility drills. Then he went on to sustain a re-injury of his ankle in the preseason that led to the IR. A conversion could occur to ILB, but he will be exposed to potentially greater trauma. I'd be happy if he could stay healthy at OLB.
