With pick number 151 the Tennessee Titans selected Avery Williamson. Williamson was considered to be the leader of Kentucky’s defense and led the team in tackles each of his last two seasons while playing middle linebacker. Williamson is from Milan,Tennessee and now will be returning to his home state to pursue his professional career. This is the seventh straight year that Kentucky has had a player taken in the NFL Draft.
Here is Williamson’s breakdown according to NFL.com:
Good size. Plays with a good, wide base. Very productive tackler. Outstanding personal and football character — works hard, is accountable and commands respect. Smart, understands the game and can make all the calls and on-field adjustment.
Williamson is looking to become the next successful linebacker from the University of Kentucky and it seems that he has all the tools to do so.
