01/24/13 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Tight Ends...3. Michael Williams, Alabama. For a guy who's got incredible size (6-5 3/4, 269 pounds) and played on three National Championship teams, you'd expect a higher ranking. But from the start of Senior Bowl practices, Williams struggled as a receiver. He had a number of drops Monday including one in an individual drill. As a blocker he's tough to beat and that sets him up to be a physical second tight end who could show up as a short-area end-zone target. A team will see his size and experience and get enamored with him enough to spend a third-round pick. - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com
01/21/13 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Monday practice: It was a tale of two skills for tight ends Michael Williams (Alabama) and Vance McDonald (Rice). Williams was the dominant tight end in blocking drills but had several drops during passing drills, including one from Lions tight end coach Bobby Johnson during position drills. He also got scolded after making a catch for not tucking away the football. McDonald struggled as a blocker, drawing some coaching pointers from Johnson throughout the drill, but he did well as a receiver save for one drop. - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com
