Sylvester Williams was picked by the Broncos (USA Today Sports Images)
The Denver Broncos have selected North Carolina DT Sylvester Williams with the 28th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
Pros: Big upside player with the ability to upset opposing offense in a lot of different ways. Warren Sapp's favorite defensive tackle in this draft class. Shows a great combination of first-step speed and violent hand movement to slice through blocks. Strong at the point -- can take on double teams with consistency. Multi-gap player.
Cons: Still raw overall and needs to be more consistent play after play.
What he brings to the team: Athletic potential. Williams isn't a fully-formed player, but many in and around the league believe him to be among the best defensive linemen in this draft class, and he'll develop well under Jack Del Rio and John Fox.
Was it the right pick? It's a good one. The Broncos need a real difference-maker in their interior defense, and Williams might be the guy.
