The Oklahoma Sooners have long boasted some of the best offensive lines in the country for much of the last two decades. In 2021, they had two players that were arguably the best at their position; Creed Humphrey at center and Trent Williams at left tackle.

Williams who plays for the San Francisco 49ers was dominant in 2021, helping the 49ers reach the playoffs and dominate the Dallas Cowboys as a force in their patented rushing attack. Though he was a great player for Washington, he’s really taken his game to another level since joining the 49ers in 2020. He’s been to nine-straight Pro Bowls, but it wasn’t until 2021 that he earned his first All-Pro selection.

His consistency and elevated play has made him one of the highest players in the NFL and at an average annual value of $23 million a year, he’s the highest paid offensive lineman in football.

Williams is a bully among men — as seen herehere and here. Williams earned a 97.8 Pro Football Focus grade last season, by far the highest mark in the NFL. When Williams re-signed in March 2021, he surpassed Packers All-Pro David Bakhtiari by just $10,000 per season for this distinction. – Anthony Holzman-Escareno, NFL.com

Only 10 non-quarterbacks make more than Trent Williams in average annual value. He’s been a model of consistency during his 11-year NFL career. He’s never played fewer than 10 games in a season and only played fewer than 13 games three times in his career.

Going into his age 34 season, Williams will be counted on once again to help the San Francisco 49ers get back to the playoffs in 2022.
