Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams had a career year in 2010, earning his first Pro Bowl invitation (albeit as an alternate) by racking up 77 tackles - 53 solo - and a career-high and team-leading 5.5 sacks. Williams was routinely lauded throughout the season for his dominant play on one of the league's worst defenses, with the folks at ProFootballFocus.com providing especially vigorous support.
Williams' latest bit of lauding comes by way of Sports Illustrated's Peter King, who has named Williams to his 2010 NFL All-Pro team. Writes King of Williams: "No other nose man is the combo pile-pusher and backfield invader that Williams is."
Joining Williams on King's defensive line are Atlanta's Jonathan Babineaux (27 tackles, four sacks) inside at tackle. New England's Vince Wilfork, another AFC Pro Bowl invitee, and Chicago's Julius Peppers made the team at defensive end.
Williams is one of six AFC East players to make King's squad, joining New England's Tom Brady, Wilfork and Devin McCourty, as well as Miami's Jake Long and Cameron Wake. Happily, there are no New York Jets on the roster.
