Lions selected Alabama TE Michael Williams with the No. 211 overall pick.
Williams (6-foot-5 3/4, 278) made 41 starts for the Crimson Tide, primarily working as an in-line blocker. He caught 24 passes for 183 yards (7.6 YPR) and four touchdowns as a senior. Williams ran a 5.19 forty at Alabama's Pro Day with a 25 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot broad jump. All but bereft of athleticism, Williams will have to be a sixth offensive lineman to make it in the pros. Williams will try and earn a spot behind Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler.

Detroit Lions Insider Tim Twentyman reports the Lions hosted Alabama TE Michael Williams on April 3.

Williams will also be visiting the Seattle Seahawks. The Lions may be looking for a blocking tight end after the season, as Brandon Pettigrew is in the final year of his contract. Williams is a one-dimensional athlete, serving primarily as a blocker, but he's exceptional at it.

Alabama TE Michael Williams ran a 5.20 forty at the school's pro day.

It is a slow time for a tight end but not overly surprising, since Williams projects as a blocking focused option. He has size to win versus smaller defenders, but it definitely takes Williams a while to get downfield and his hands aren't overly strong. Still, we expect a long career as a second or third tight end.

Alabama senior TE Michael Williams wants to be known for more than his blocking and is confident in his improved receiving ability.

Williams has been watching highlight reels of Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham all offseason in the hopes of picking up small details in their game. "I think he's very capable to add some things to the passing game as well," head coach Nick Saban said. "He's done that probably as consistently as anybody in our program." Saban also called Williams a "fantastic" edge blocker and a pivotal part of the Crimson Tide Offense. Only Outland Trophy winner Barrett Jones has started more games on Alabama's offense.
