The Titans have moved Avery Williamson to strong side linebacker.
He filled in at weak side backer last year after Zach Brown suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the season opener. Williamson exceeded expectations during his rookie year, finishing with PFF's 18th-highest inside linebacker grade out of 60 qualifiers. Just as he did during the second half of last season, Williamson will serve as the Titans' defensive play caller. Tue, Aug 4, 2015 08:23:00 PM

Date:

Avery Williamson played 58 of the Titans' 77 defensive snaps in Week 6.

Williamson actually out-snapped Wesley Woodyard, who only played 49 snaps. Both players saw time in the Titans' subpackages, so neither was in an every-down role. Williamson's snap percentage has trended upward over the last two weeks, while Woodyard's usage is going in the opposite direction.

Titans signed No. 151 overall pick ILB Avery Williamson to a four-year contract.

Williamson (6-foot-1, 246 pounds) posted a 4.66 40-yard dash to go along with a 10-foot broad jump at the Combine. He should have the necessary burst to man Mike 'backer in the pros. Williamson is not a great athlete, however, and struggled in coverage for Kentucky. He's a two-down prospect who will start off on special teams.

Titans selected Kentucky ILB Avery Williamson with the No. 151 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Williamson (6-foot-1, 246) was a two-year starter at middle linebacker for the Wildcats. He led UK in tackles (102) as a senior, adding four tackles for loss, one sack, and two fumble recoveries, earning second-team All-SEC honors. Williamson ran 4.66 at the Combine with a 10-foot broad jump, displaying necessary burst to man Mike 'backer in the pros. Williamson still isn't a great athlete, and struggled in coverage in college. He's more of a two-down prospect who should quickly contribute on special teams.
