Strengths: Dan Williams is a huge, strong guy with a low center of gravity who can really clog up the middle of the line of scrimmage. He's fairly versatile as well, though, as he's often seen far away from his starting point when the play ends, whether that's along one of the sidelines chasing a scrambling quarterback or a screening receiver or 15 yards down field recovering a fumble.

Weaknesses: Williams obviously doesn't have the star power (or the stats) of Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh. Weight could be a potential problem; he reported in 2005 at 360 pounds. However, he lost 30-40 pounds pretty quickly and mostly kept it off through his playing days at Tennessee, so he appears to have the discipline required to stay at a more reasonable weight for defensive tackles.

Why the Cardinals will draft Williams: When Williams was the highest rated player on the board at 26, it would've been hard to pass on him. The Cardinals need a dominant defensive tackle and that's exactly what he brings to the table. The Cardinals only have Gabe Watson signed at defensive tackle and he's rehabbing an injured need. Williams could immediately come in and start day one while solidifying that position for the next 10 years.
