Williams, who recorded 21 sacks in the 49 career games that he played in at Alabama, measured in at this years scouting combine at 6027, 244-pounds with 32 3/4-inch arms. He ran the 40-yard-dash in 4.68 seconds in addition to posting a 33.5-inch vertical jump.
During the combine, Williams admitted he failed multiple drug tests while playing at Alabama. While he was never suspended by Alabama for those failed tests, he was held out of the first half of the Tide’s game against Kentucky following his arrest for carrying a pistol without a permit.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was present at the Alabama pro day this year.
Kpassagnon recorded 22 sacks in the 41 games that he played in at Villanova. At the combine he measured in at 6060, 289-pounds with 35 5/8-inch arms.
The Steelers have shown a lot of interest in Kpassagnon throughout the pre-draft process and thus it’s not surprising to see him being one of the team’s 30 allotted visitors.
