4 Day 2 linebackers the NY Giants can target in the NFL Draft
By Reese Nasser
3. Tulane LB Dorian Williams
Over four seasons at Tulane, Dorian Williams developed into a strong prospect at the linebacker position. While he isn't the fastest or has the biggest frame, he can still make a major impact on the defensive side of the ball.
In total, Williams appeared in 43 games while at Tulane. He finished his collegiate career recording 195 solo tackles, 36 total tackles, 27 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 13 defended passes, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
Williams appeared in 14 games during his final season at Tulane. He finished the season recording 81 solo tackles, 132 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, seven defended passes and two interceptions.
During his time at Tulane, Williams showed an ability to impact against both the run and pass. In the 2020 season, he recorded a career-high 15.5 tackles for loss. Just two seasons later, he recorded seven defended passes and two interceptions.
Williams is a high-volume tackler that at times has been limited by his size. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for in speed. With the versatility that he brings to the game, he has the potential to make an impact early in his career.
