Beefing up the offensive line has been a major focus for the Atlanta Falcons this offseason. Despite making changes up front, the team still lacks a long-term solution at right tackle. We examine Alabama tackle Jonah Williams as that potential solution.

Jonah Williams is certainly a player that should be on the radar for the Atlanta Falcons. The 6’4 302 pound offensive tackle played his college football in the Southeastern Conference, for the University of Alabama. Williams who is originally from Folsom, California, was a USA Today High School All American, that developed into a three-year starter for the Crimson Tide. He is considered the consensus second best offensive tackle to enter the 2019 NFL draft.

Jonah Williams made an immediate impact in college, and was named to the All SEC second team, as a freshman in 2016. He improved during his sophomore season, after moving to the all important left tackle position. Williams increased his stature to that of a First Team All SEC lineman. He also debuted on the NCAA All American team, being named to the Third Team. He was an anchor on the offensive line for the 2017 National Champions. In 2019, Jonah was once again dominant, being named to the All SEC First Team for the second straight season. He also received the accolade of being unanimously named to the NCAA All American First Team. After a stellar three-year college career, Williams has decided to enter the NFL Draft.
