Connor Williams is about make a lot of money as an NFL draft pick, so one of his teammates had to embarrass him one more time before that big pay day.
The former Texas tackle was included in a not-so-flattering video from a Longhorns practice, courtesy of Texas linebacker Breckyn Hager on Instagram. In the clip, Hager tosses Williams aside on his way to a strip sack of quarterback Shane Buechele.
Williams responded with a laugh in the comments as some of his other Texas teammates joined in teasing him, so he took it well. Hager obviously shared the clip in good fun. Williams is still going to be taken early in the draft, possibly in the first round, so he’s going to make plenty of money. And Hager gets to brag about beating a potential NFL franchise left tackle for a sack in practice.
Williams could find out where he’ll be playing in the NFL as early as Thursday night. If he’s not taken in the first round, he’s expected to come off the board early in Round 2, which begins Friday at 7 p.m. ET.
