SYLVESTER WILLIAMS RUMORS
In this third part of the Digging Deep series, we look at the Houston Texans’ first pick of the third round, offensive tackle Brennan Williams. Williams was considered a top tackle in the draft before a shoulder injury ended his season with the Tar Heels late in the 2012 season.

PICK: Sylvester Williams, DT, North CarolinaANALYSIS: As Mel Kiper just said, Williams was the last of the big 4 defensive tackles. Williams has been mocked as high as 18 to the Cowboys, but this is a better area for him. Denver was certainly in need of a DT, and I think the decision came down to Williams or DE Tank Carradine.

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, Sylvester Williams is every bit the same level of prospect at DT.
