49ers had private workout with Alabama DE Tim Williams

Apr 7, 2017 at 12:27 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers held a private workout with Alabama defensive end Tim Williams, per Jared Tokarz‏ of NFL Draft Insider. The in-demand edge defender has also had workouts with the Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, and Seattle Seahawks.

Over his final two years at Alabama, Williams had 50 tackles with 28.5 for a loss, 19.5 sacks, and three passes defended. He was a substitute player in 2015 but still managed 10.5 sacks during his junior year. In 2016, Williams earned 2nd-Team All-America and SEC honors.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Williams to Leonard Floyd, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Alabama has the type of talent and scheme on defense that can make life much easier for everyone along the front seven, but Williams has explosiveness and pass-rush talent to create his own havoc as a pass rusher regardless of what is around him. Scouts say he is lighter than his listed weight and needs to prove he can play with increased toughness in order to reach his potential. Williams' career might be as a pass-rush specialist, but he's talented enough at that endeavor to become a dangerous rush linebacker in the NFL."

Veteran left tackle Trent Williams may be one of the San Francisco 49ers' most important offseason decisions. During last year's draft, the team traded for him as a replacement for the retired Joe Staley. William was to anchor the offensive line. Some questioned whether there would be some rust after the tackle missed all of the 2019 season. Williams finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded tackle and second-highest-graded offensive lineman. The 49ers cannot use the franchise tag on Williams. That was part of his deal's restructured final year, which was reworked following the trade from Washington to San Francisco. Now, Williams is slated to become a free agent. He would like to return to the 49ers, and the team would certainly like

The veteran tackle admits that his preferred offseason outcome would be a return to San Francisco but is curious about his free-agency value. "It's been 11 years in the league,"
