Brooks: Sly Williams could turn Broncos defense “from good to great quickly”

AFC West draft grades: Gap closing on division champ Broncos

The Broncos add a blue-collar worker to the lineup with the selection of Williams. The former Tar Heel comes from comes a humble background (Williams worked at a factory for a while after high school before walking on at Coffeyville Community College), but developed into one of the most dominant defenders in college football by outworking the competition. Based on his previous drive and determination, Williams could become an unstoppable force in the middle for the Broncos. If so, Denver’s defense could go from good to great quickly in 2013.

Brooks is also a fan of the Montee Ball and Quanterus Smith picks, for what that's worth.
