SHARE Bears to take a closer look at tackling machine from small school

The Bears will bring in Murray State linebacker Nathan Williams for a pre-draft visit next week.

Williams is a tackling machine who led all levels of college football last season, averaging 14.9 tackles per game. Williams was the defensive player of the year in the Ohio Valley Conference and was a football subdivision, or as I prefer to call it I-AA, All-American. Wiliams, 6-1, 228 pounds, made 23 tackles in a meeting with Illinois State.

He’s run the 40-yard dash in 4.75 seconds, and projects as an inside linebacker. If he can move well, he might be useful as a young player on special teams. The Bears will get a closer look in a few days.
