Did Williams improve stock at NFL combine?

Posted Feb 26, 2011

COUGAR ZACK WILLIAMS, headed into the NFL combine, was projected as the 10th best center prospect in the NFL Draft and a potential 7th round pick/free agent. Based on his numbers at the combine, he may have improved his stock.

The official NFL site lists Zack Williams this weekend at 6-3, 309 pounds.

The official NFL combine site following Saturday’s session rated Williams a "top performer" in the 20-yard shuttle, 3-cone drill and bench press.

Williams clocked a 4.62 in the 20-yard shuttle, tied for ninth among all offensive linemen. The top mark on the day was 4.14, set by Jason Kelce, a 280-pounder out of Cincinnati.

Williams turned in a 7.54 in the three-cone drill, ninth among the offensive linemen. The top mark was 7.22, again by Kelce.

Although Williams was listed as a top performer in the bench press, the NFL did not have his number of reps listed as of mid-Saturday evening.

Williams also logged a 30-inch vertical leap, tied for 12th among offensive linemen. The top mark was 32.5 inches, set by Daniel Kilgore, a 6-3, 308 pounder out of Appalachian State.

Williams ran a 5.29 in the 40, tied for 13th among the offensive linemen. The best mark was a 4.93, set by Kelce.

Williams started all 12 games this past season and earned the Mike Utley Award at the postseason banquet, given to the top Cougar o-lineman. A junior college transfer who redshirted his first season at WSU in 2008, Williams started 19 games in his Cougar career, missing four to injury.
