Drafted:Drafted by Buffalo in 2006 (5/134).
|Assets:||Pretty well-rounded and stout against the run. Can get up the middle. Has sneaky athleticism that keeps him in most plays.As intense as they come and never, ever gives up on a play; will work as hard as anyone.|
|Flaws:||Not a huge or overpowering physical presence and isn't ideally-sized to play the nose position (which he sometimes has to). Durability has become a question mark due to his size and position. A bit of a late bloomer.|
|Career Potential:||Pro Bowl inside defensive tackle.|

ImpactWilliams underwent offseason surgery to repair a bone spur on his heel and missed the entire spring. He's nearing 100 percent now. "As of now he's full go," said GM Doug Whaley. "I think they're going to limit him in practice ... and not put too much on him right off the bat, but he is not going to be on PUP."

NewsDT Kyle Williams (Achilles') is not practicing as Bills camp opens.
ImpactWilliams had February surgery to repair bone spurs in his right heel. Note that he had a similar procedure on his left heel in 2011. "It's getting better," said Williams, a two-time Pro Bowler. "It's just missing just a little bit. But it's close and I'm getting better."

Bills DT Kyle Williams had Achilles operation | 05/10/2013 6:44 PM
NewsBills.com confirms DT Kyle Williams is recovering from surgery on his right Achilles' tendon.
ImpactWilliams had left Achilles' surgery last year. While he avoided a complete rupture of the right Achilles' -- it was "frayed" -- he's yet to be medically cleared to participate in any workouts. Last year's rehab of a similar injury sidelined Williams for five months. Williams remained highly effective, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 defensive tackle behind Geno Atkins and Gerald McCoy. The buildup of surgeries is still a concern.
