Highlights: Steelers draft pick Vince Williams blows up Clemson guard Dalton Freeman in Senior Bowl

Stacy Revere

Steelers sixth-round draft pick announced his presence with authority at the Senior Bowl in January.

Another reason why Florida State ILB and Steelers draft pick Vince Williams is becoming my favorite player of this draft class.

A highlight from Williams taken from the Senior Bowl practices this January, he crushes a pulling guard much to the approval of everyone listening.

This is a man's hit. It appears Clemson's Dalton Freeman (who went undrafted and signed with the Jets) isn't really in a great position to hit Williams, who's coming unexposed into the B gap. The sound of the hit - as well as the audible gasp of network analyst Mike Mayock - is inspiring to those who like hard-hitting football.

The best part, though, is the fact Williams levels a 300-pound interior linemen, and then he still tries to get Stanford's Stepfan Taylor, who bounced back inside (they were live on the line but backs weren't to be tackled). After a hit like that, most guys would be starry-eyed enough to not even notice the ball carrier is there. Williams almost made the play as well.
