A source tells me that Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams not only had a formal interview with the Bucs at the NFL combine but has a 30-visit scheduled April 8 (teams are allowed to bring in a maximum of 30 draft prospects, excluding local players). The Bucs hold the No. 5 pick in the NFL draft, so he would be an option there.

Teams will certainly select players in next month's draft on their ability to play football, but just texted a long-time scout to simply ask most impressive performances in the 40-yard dash by an impressive group of defensive players who have worked out Sunday and quickly got back "Williams, Sweat, White.'' That would be Alabama's Quinnen Williams (4.83 at 303 pounds), Mississippi State's Montez Sweat (4.41 at 260 pounds) and LSU's Devin White (4.42 at 237 pounds). Now the personnel folks will fit those times into what they see in the game video. It should be noted the same scout added "really liked what (Nick) Bosa did.'' All in all it has been a big day in Indianapolis for the front seven guys.

Before Quinnen Williams set foot in Indianapolis for the NFL's scouting combine there were already plenty of folks in the NFL who believed the Alabama defensive tackle was the best player in the 2019 draft. Williams' workout Sunday, with the rest of the defensive linemen, only enhanced that argument. Consider since 2006 Williams' official 40-time of 4.83 seconds was the second-fastest 40 by a 300-pound defensive player and fourth-fastest by any 300-pound player at the combine. Since '06 Jaye Howard is the only defensive player who weighed at least 300 pounds to have run faster than Williams (Howard had a 4.82 in the 40 at the 2012 combine).

Alabama DT Quinnen Williams just ran a 4.84 (u) 40 yard dash with a 1.67 10 yard split. That's moving at 6-foot-3, 303 pounds. Williams' game film is loaded with impact plays, too. He's a disruptor on the interior of the defensive front. First-step quicks, power and technique. Top 5 talent in the 2019 class.

In the large men running fast department at the NFL scouting combine, Clemson's Dexter Lawrence, Alabama's Quinnen Williams and Clemson's Christian Wilkins showed plenty of athleticism in the early going in Sunday's workouts in Indianapolis. Lawrence, at 342 pounds, had an unofficial clocking of 5.05 in the 40-yard dash, Williams (303 pounds) had an unofficial 4.87 and Wilkins (315 pounds) had an unofficial 5.10. Just as a point of comparison Dontari Poe got plenty of attention for his 4.98 40-yard dash, at 346 pounds at the time, at the 2012 combine.

When asked Saturday about how things were going for him at the scouting combine Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams smiled and said "Last year (in 2017) I wasn't even starting ... I'm just super excited, super excited to be here."

Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Willians said Saturday at the NFL scouting combine that Georgia center Lamont Gaillard was the toughest offensive lineman he faced in his career with the Crimson Tide. "He gave no tendencies," Williams said.

In a group of tight ends that is considered to be predominantly stocked with better pass catchers than in-line options overall, UCLA's Caleb Wilson and Iowa's Noah Fant were the fastest Saturday at the NFL's scouting combine. Wilson ran an unofficial 4.50 in the 40-yard dash while Fant clocked an unofficial 4.51 (one scout I contacted had him at a hand-held 4.49). Two of the other most highly-rated tight ends in the draft, Alabama's Irv Smith Jr. and Iowa's T.J. Hockenson, had their best of 40s of the day clocked unofficially at 4.64 and 4.71, respectively.

Alabama RB Damien Harris (5-foot-10, 216) posted a 4.57 (o) 40 time, with a 37-inch vertical jump. On film, Harris is a one-cut, downhill runner with a physical style to his game. And the vertical jump showcases his short-area explosive ability. Harris has the traits of a starting NFL running back.
