The Caw: Brandon Williams Walking On His Hands

Posted May 1, 2013

A YouTube video of DT Brandon Williams impressed Head Coach John Harbaugh.


Can you walk on your hands for nine seconds?

Ravens third-round pick Brandon Williams can – and he’s a 335-pound defensive tackle.

Even before seeing Williams in the flesh for the first time, I know he’s a freakish athlete.

Several people at the Senior Bowl asked Williams for the video, so he posted it on YouTube. It caught the attention of Head Coach John Harbaugh, who brought it up to reporters.

“There’s a YouTube video out there of him walking on his hands,” Harbaugh said. “For a big man, he’s really an athletic guy. So, we’re excited to have him.”

Williams also tied for the most bench presses of any prospect at the combine. He and Southern Methodist University defensive end Margus Hunt each put up 38 reps of 225 pounds.

Balance is a key attribute for big men in the trenches, as it’s easy for them to get toppled over. If Williams can balance like this on his hands, imagine what he can do on his feet.
