4 LBs the NY Giants should target in the draft after signing Bobby Okereke
By Reese Nasser
3. Tulane LB Dorian Williams
During his time at Tulane, Dorian Williams developed into an elite talent at the linebacker position. Through 43 collegiate games, he recorded 316 total tackles, 27 tackles for loss, 9.5 total sacks, 13 defended passes, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
This past season, Williams was a rockstar for the Tulane defense. The former three-star recruit finished the season recording a career-high 132 total tackles, and 81 solo tackles. He also added 8.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, seven defended passes, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
As Tulane took on USC in the Cotton Bowl, Williams was brilliant once again. In his final collegiate game, he recorded a season-high 17 total tackles against an elite USC offense. Coming in at 6-1 and 228 pounds, Williams has the build of a modern-day safety.
But even with his size, he has shown that he can play against anyone on the field. Given that Okereke will already take over the lead duties at linebacker, Williams could be the perfect player to line up alongside him. With his speed and ability to fly around the defense, he could be a big-play machine regularly.
