Per sources, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed veteran defensive lineman Brandon Williams. Let’s take a look at Brandon’s career.
Williams played football at Missouri Southern State University, a small D2 program. While there, he became a 3 time All-American and caught the eyes of many.
After a phenomenal college career, Williams was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 3rd round of the 2013 NFL draft.
Since then, Williams has played 9 seasons in the NFL, all with the Ravens. Throughout his time there, Williams played in 123 games. Across those games, Williams tallied 323 total tackles, including 183 solo tackles and 33 tackles for a loss. He also had 6.5 sacks, 19 QB hits, and 2 forced fumbles.
Williams put together these impressive numbers while maintaining somewhat of a limited snap count. He played just an average of 51.8% of defensive snaps per season.
His 6’1″, 336 pound frame makes him a dominant force. Similar to the likes of Chris Jones, Williams is a player who can tear an offensive line apart. His large frame gives him the ability to wreak havoc, making plays without having the stats to show his dominance.
His dominance was finally recognized in 2018 when he was named to the Pro Bowl team.
I believe this is a great move for Kansas City. It adds depth to an already talented defensive line room. Williams is an experienced veteran that has the ability to not only make plays, but set up others for success.
While primarily a defensive tackle, Williams has also played snaps at nose tackle and defensive end. He can be a dominant, versatile player. I think he is the perfect fit for the Chiefs.
Welcome to Kansas City, Brandon and Go Chiefs!
