Steelers grab defensive tackle Nick Williams from Samford with their final pick in NFL draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their NFL draft by taking defensive tackle Nick Williams with their seventh-round pick.

The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Williams will likely be moved to defensive end at some point. Defensive line coach John Mitchell calls Williams a raw talent who plays quicker than many players his size.

Williams was a highly touted high school basketball player before converting to football. He gained 80 pounds in four years at Samford and Mitchell says it will take a while for Williams to adjust to the NFL.

The Steelers lack depth along the defensive line after veteran Casey Hampton was not re-signed.
