Steelers selected Samford DE Nick Williams with the No. 223 overall pick.
Williams (6-foot-4 1/2, 309) played five technique in Samford's 3-4 defense, logging eight tackles for loss and seven sacks as a senior. A long-armed (34") athlete, he ran 4.94 with a 1.63 ten-yard split and 33-inch vertical at the Combine. Williams didn't begin playing football until his senior year in high school and took too many plays off in college, but he offers developmental upside. He'll compete to make Pittsburgh's final 53 in training camp. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 06:23:00 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler isn't sure why Samford DL Nick Williams isn't receiving more buzz.

Brugler notes the defensive lineman only participated in one year of (high school) football, and Williams is an intriguing size/speed/strength prospect. "More than a few teams are excited about his NFL upside," Brugler tweeted. We haven't heard his name much during the pre-draft process.
