Steelers ILB Vince Williams is expected to be a reserve in 2014 after the first-round selection of Ryan Shazier.
A two-down run thumper and 2013 sixth-round pick, Williams started 11 games as a rookie but was generally overmatched. Williams will now be a role player on defense and special teamer, which are the duties he is best suited for. May 23 - 1:55 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he's been impressed with rookie ILB Vince Williams.

With Larry Foote (biceps, injured reserve) sidelined, Williams has got the majority of snaps opposite Lawrence Timmons and should eventually overtake Kion Wilson as the full-time starter. "Vince is doing a nice job, not only in play but in communication," Tomlin said. "He appears to be a natural, but we'll continue to play he and Kion until we get some clarity in terms of who's going to rise up and seize that spot."

Steelers signed sixth-round ILB Vince Williams to a four-year contract.

A physical thumper at inside linebacker, Williams is viewed as a potential long-term heir apparent to Larry Foote. As a rookie, Williams will try to carve out a role on special teams, assuming he makes the final 53-man roster.

Steelers selected Florida State LB Vince Williams with the No. 206 overall pick.

Williams (6-foot 3/4, 233) was a two-year starter at MIKE 'backer for the 'Noles, registering 13.5 career tackles for loss, an interception, and three sacks. He ran 4.76 with a 1.71 ten-yard split and 22 reps on the bench. Williams was not invited to the Combine, but played physically on college tape. "As soon as he steps on the field he just starts coming downhill and hitting people," Mike Mayock observed. The Steelers have a cast of unknowns behind ILBs Lawrence Timmons and Larry Foote.
