NFL Mock Draft 2013: Dallas picks Jesse Williams in SB Nation mock

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Dallas Cowboys will add to their defensive front with Alabama DT Jesse Williams, according to an SB Nation mock draft.

The Dallas Cowboys will be picking 18th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft after just barely missing out on the playoff picture. With plenty of holes on the 8-8 squad, there will be plenty of options for them to pursue in the draft, and SB Nation's latest 2013 NFL Mock Draft has them going for a big one, the nose tackle position.

Josh Brent may never play again after his involvement in the death of teammate Jerry Brown, and the rest of the team's options could probably do with a boost, so SBN's mock has the Cowboys going for Alabama DT Jesse Williams:

Nose tackle Jay Ratliff played in just six games this season and may be due for a more rotational role for the Cowboys. With Josh Brent's playing future looking bleak, Williams could be a great two-down player for the Cowboys, while Ratliff plays inside on third-down passing situations.

The big Australian nose tackle originally played for Arizona Western College before moving to Alabama and anchoring the front for the Crimson Tide's 3-4 defense the past two seasons. He helped to lead the Tide to a national championship in 2011 and will be looking for another one this year against Notre Dame.
