Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams interviewed with the Minnesota Vikings, Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Williams is a versatile prospect who has drawn comparisons to New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller.

Williams is a fast undersized tight end at 6-foot-2, 236 pounds with sound hands and the ability to separate from defenders.

Although undersized without ideal bulk, he's regarded as a willing, high-effort blocker.

He won the John Mackey award as the nation's top tight end, catching 54 passes for 627 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Williams chose Arkansas over Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and Georgia Tech, catchign 61 passes for 723 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore. As a junior, he caught 42 passes for 411 yards and three touchdowns.

Williams had an extremely rough childhood, overcoming a lot of adversity to get to this point.

His biological father abused Williams, his mother and his two sisters.

And Williams' father is now serving consecutive sentences of 25 years and 27 years in Texas for attempted murder, as well as other convictions.
