Alabama Crimson Tide defensive tackle Quinnen Williams is off the board at the NFL Draft!

The New York Jets selected Williams third overall, behind Kyler Murray and Nick Bosa, respectively.

Williams was a force at Alabama, recording 19.5 tackles for loss last season and eight sacks. He won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation’s best defensive tackle, as well.

Congratulations to Quinnen Williams and best of luck to him with the Jets!
