Former Alabama defensive tackle, and 2013 NFL Draft hopeful, Jesse Williams has been drawing a lot of interest from teams during interviews at the Scouting Combine about his wide array of tattoos.Williams, who was born in Australia and is expected to be drafted between the late first and early second rounds once April's draft rolls around, sports some rather unique ink that has turned some heads this week."They usually ask how many I have and do they hurt," he said Saturday at the combine. "I haven't had any negative comments about them. A lot of them like them, so it's not too bad, said Williams."Team executives have asked all about Williams' body art, which includes a flower tattoo that spans the back of his head, a smiley face tattoo on his right earlobe, the phrase "fear is a liar" on his scalp, and the letters "YOLO" written next to his left ear, among others. Of course, the YOLO tattoo derives from a term popularized by hip-hop artist Drake ands stands for "You Only Live Once."Williams says that he isn't a fan of anyone who looks down upon people bearing ink."I don't really think too highly of people who disagree with tattoos," he said. "It's pretty common nowadays. It's how people show their interior by displaying it on their interior. For me, it's simple reminders about my family and what I come from. They mean a lot to me and get me through a lot of tough situations."Williams wrapped up his college career at Alabama this past season with a lopsided victory over Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game.Via USA TODAY
