Likely top-5 pick Quinnen Williams needs finger surgery after combine

Alabama product Quinnen Williams is almost certainly going to be selected in the first five picks of the 2019 NFL Draft. But this week the defensive tackle won’t be doing the bench press at the combine due to a finger injury that will require surgery afterward.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media shared this news on Wednesday afternoon.

In no way should this negatively affect Williams’ draft stock. His power on the gridiron is well documented.

The former Alabama star could potentially be selected as high as No. 1 or No. 2 overall if the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers stand pat and don’t trade down.
