Brandon Williams invited to NFL Combine

Updated:

JOPLIN -- Missouri Southern senior defensive tackle Brandon Williams has been invited to participate at the NFL Combine to be held at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis, Indiana on February 20-26. The event will be televised live each day on the NFL Network. 

Williams is one of just two MIAA players (Missouri Western's David Bass being the other) and just eight Division II players to receive an invite to the NFL's annual test of its upcoming draftees. 

Williams is coming off an impressive week at the Senior Bowl where he impressed every scout there and held his own against some of the best seniors in all of college football. 

This season he was named to five different All-American teams, as well as being named the Division II National Defensive Player of the Year by two different organizations. 

Williams became the all-time sacks leader for the school and finished with 27 in his career at Missouri Southern. He had at least a half sack in all but three games this year and had a tackle for a loss in all but one game. He finished the season second on the team with 68 tackles, 31 solo, including 16.5 for a loss of 58 yards. He had 8.5 sacks for a loss of 39 yards, two pass break ups, eight quarterback hurries, five forced fumbles and one safety on the season and finished third in the MIAA in sacks and tackles for a loss, while ranking second in forced fumbles.
