Kyle Williams has landed a new gig.
The recently retired Buffalo Bills' defensive tackle will serve as an analyst for NFL Network during coverage of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine next month in Indianapolis. Williams retired following the 2018 season, capping a 13-year career spent entirely with the Bills.
Williams and NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest will provide on-field commentary as the defensive line prospects go through drills on March 3.
Media coverage of the combine continues to grow, with a press release Tuesday from NFL Network declaring that this year's event will be the most extensive yet. On-field drills will air from March 1-4, and for the first time, ABC will broadcast two hours of quarterback and wide receiver drills at 1 p.m. on March 2.
The coverage schedule for the rest of the positional workouts looks like this:
- 9 a.m. Friday, March 1 – Running backs, offensive linemen, special teams.
- 10 a.m. Saturday, March 2 – Quarterbacks, wide receivers, tight ends.
- 9 a.m. Sunday, March 3 – Defensive linemen, linebackers.
- 9 a.m. Monday, March 4 – Defensive backs.
Williams' role will be similar to the one set for retired Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas. He will be joined by the NFL Network's Shaun O'Hara in providing analysis of the on-field drills for offensive linemen on March 1.
NFL Network's combine week coverage starts with Feb. 27 and 28 with four hours of live coverage each day press conferences starting at 1 p.m.
