Trent Williams considered turning pro in January 2009 but came back for his senior season, along with teammates Sam Bradford, Gerald McCoy and Jermaine Gresham. Now Williams is projected as a first-round draft pick, generally slotted between 10 and 20.

How would you describe your senior year?

"The team had the injury bug, including myself. I mean, the Lord blessed me; I didn’t have any great injuries. Just had a bunch of nagging injuries. But when I got healthy, I think I produced well.”

What are you hoping to accomplish here in Indianapolis?

"What everybody’s hoping to accomplish, move up in the draft.”

What are your strengths and your weaknesses?

"Strengths, I’m athletic. I don’t know if I want to discuss my weaknesses on camera.”

Which side do you fit better on, right or left?

"Left. Because I played left my whole life (before OU). It’s kind of a little more weird moving over to the right (his freshman through junior seasons) than it was moving to the left (his senior season).”

What do you think of the class of offensive tackles? Some say six could be picked in the first round.

"Oh man, it’s just impressive to me. Last year was a good O-line draft, and I think it’s just becoming a trend now. Hopefully I can sneak my way up in the top 10. Personally, I would think that I would rank towards the top. Not saying that I’m the best or anything, but I think that’s what the combine is for, to help separate the competition.”

What’s your No.
