2) How does this impact the rest of the Bills' defense? The acquisition of Williams helps the Bills transition into a 4-3 under new defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt. The right defensive end position is critical to the success of the scheme, due to the need to generate pressure on the quarterback's blind side (most quarterbacks are right-handed). Williams is the ideal rusher to occupy that spot on the defense with his combination of size, speed and athleticism. His length and quickness pose problems for lumbering edge blockers, while his ability to turn speed into power overwhelms offensive tackles with questionable balance and body control.With Williams aligned on the defensive right, Marcell Dareus and Chris Kelsay should enjoy more isolated matchups on passing downs. Dareus, in particular, should benefit from the attention directed towards Williams. As the one- or three-technique aligned over the top of the guard, he will have the opportunity to work on his opponent's edges without having to worry about fending off assistance from an additional blocker. Given Dareus' ability to lead the team with 5.5 sacks while receiving little help from his teammates, the addition of Williams to the lineup could lead to defensive fireworks.The presence of Williams along the line also will help the Bills' ball-hawking secondary generate more turnovers. The unit tied for sixth in the NFL with 20 interceptions last season, and they should see more errant passes head their direction with Williams and Co. generating a consistent pass rush up front.
