Vince Williams is not the most complete of inside linebackers, but the Steelers coaching staff knows how to bring out the best in him. His greatest strength is as a physical thumper against the run. While Williams can be somewhat of a liability in coverage, he has shown plenty of success as a pass rusher, with 18 sacks over the last four seasons. Williams earned a starting spot next to Ryan Shazier in 2017. As Shazier's sidekick, he saw action on about 75% of the snaps, recording 69 tackles, 20 assists, and 8 sacks. That remains his most statistically productive season though he has held a similar role each season since. With the emergence of Robert Spillane last season and the selection of Buddy Johnson in this year's draft, Williams will have more competition in 2021 and might see a reduced role. With the Steelers being thin on the edge, he could see some opportunity at outside linebacker.
