HOUSTON - Former Wolf Pack safety Duke Williams made a pre-draft visit to the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Williams was a second team All-Mountain West selection last season. He was second on the Wolf Pack with 106 tackles, including 5.5 for loss and an interception. He also had three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
He really opened up some eyes at the NFL Combine, having the best time of any safety in two different drills.
He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds, and did the three-cone drill in 4.00 seconds flat. The 6-foot, 190 pound Williams had the fifth-best broad jump at 10.6 inches, and the seventh-best vertical jump at 37.5 inches. He put up 225lbs 13 times on the bench press.
Williams also played in both the Senior Bowl and the East-West Shrine Game.
