Kevin Williams Biography
Kevin Williams was born August 16, 1980 in Arkadelphia, Arkansas and is a defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL. He is currently one half of the Williams Wall (with nose tackle Pat Williams, no relation), anchoring the NFL's best rush defense for three consecutive years (20062008), only allowing an average of 68.5 rushing yards per game.
After graduating from Oklahoma State University, he was selected by the Vikings with the 9th pick of the first round in the 2003 NFL Draft.
In 2003, Williams was one of the top impact rookie defenders in team history and led the Vikings with 10.5 sacks, the 2nd-most sacks by a Vikings rookie behind Keith Millard's 11.0 in 1985. He was a consensus All-Rookie team honoree having started opening 12 games of the season at left defensive end and moved inside to start at nose tackle for the final 4 games. He set the Vikings rookie record with 3.0 sacks in season finale at Arizona on December 28. Williams was named NFC Defensive Rookie of the Month when he had 18 tackles, 5.0 sacks, a forced fumble and an interception in the 4-game stretch and joined Carl Eller (1964) and Al Noga (1988) as the only rookie defensive ends in team history to start the season opener when he debuted in the lineup at Green Bay September 7 and also joined defensive end Lance Johnstone as players with 10.0+ sacks, the first time in Vikings history since 1993 when Chris Doleman and John Randle accomplished the feat.
Williams compiled 11.5 sacks in 2004, 4 in 2005, and 5 in 2006.
On December 23, 2006, the Minnesota Vikings signed him to a new 7-year contract extension that could reach $50 million with incentives, the contract also included $16 million in guaranteed money.
In 2007, during the NFL Kickoff game, Williams intercepted Atlanta Falcons quarterback Joey Harrington and ran 54 yards for a touchdown in the 1st quarter. This was the Vikings' first TD for the 2007 season.
