My #1 ranked player in the 2019 draft class has finally announced he is leaving school early and heading for the NFL. Alabama’s DL Quinnen Williams announced on Friday that he will be leaving Alabama after just two seasons as a member of the Crimson Tide.

Williams, 21, has 10 sacks (7.0 in 2018), 26 tackles for loss (19.5 in 2018), and 91 total tackles (71 in 2018) over his two-year span at the University of Alabama. Williams was playing splitting time with multiple talented players like; Da’Ron Payne, Jonathan Allen, Da’Shawn Hand, Dalvin Tomlinson, and more since joining the Crimson Tide in 2016-2017. Williams had a breakout year in 2018 and pushed himself into the conversation as one of the most talented interior defensive lineman that the NFL has seen in some time. Due to his elite power, explosiveness, and ability to consistently be disruptive, Quinnen Williams is a name every NFL football fan will want to get familiar with before we get to the draft in April.
