With the number ninety-four pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Baltimore Ravens have selected Missouri Southern State defensive tackle Brandon Williams. This marks the third consecutive pick the Ravens have used on their defense, which lost an inordinate number of players during the 2013 offseason. They started off by picking a safety and linebacker, and have now added a new defensive tackle to the mix. Williams is extremely strong--posting 38 reps of the bench press at the combine--and has a low center of gravity.
Williams is comparable to current Bengals defensive tackle Brandon Thompson, who is another big, powerful run defender. The Ravens already have a core group of defensive tackles, but Williams should come in and contribute on the early downs.
