Summary

Williams is the latest in a long line of Steelers late round picks to eventually be developed into a starter at linebacker. After being picked in round six in 2013 he spent three seasons working mostly on special teams while seeing limited opportunity as the third inside backer. When Ryan Shazier was banged up early in 2016, Williams had an opportunity to start a few games. He made the most of the opportunity including a monster week four outing in which he recorded 13 solo tackles, a pair of assists and a sack. For an encore Williams went 8-1-1 the following week. His strong play gave the organization enough confidence to let longtime starter Lawrence Timmons to leave in free agency. (May 25)
