Chiefs, Other 3-4 Teams Talk With Tennessee's DT Dan Williams

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs are one of a handful of teams that have spoken with Tennessee defensive tackle Dan Williams, according to Tim Yotter of Scout.com.

The 6'2", 329 Williams has drawn the attention of the San Diego Chargers, Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos as well - all 3-4 defense teams.

Williams, like Terrence Cody (minus about 40 pounds), is expected to play nose tackle should he be drafted to a 3-4 defense. 

Game tapes from Tennessee show he can obviously stop the run but it's his pass rush abilities that scouts want to see. I first heard some concerns of his pass rush from Pat Kirwan of Sirius NFL Radio yesterday and he recognizes that.

"My junior year when I was thinking about coming out," Williams told Yotter, "I know that was one area I really needed to work on before I came out. I think I improved for the most part and I’m going to continue to work on it."

Williams says he's heard he'll be taken anyway from the late first round to the second round.  The Chiefs, of course, have an early second round pick.
