All-time Greatest Minnesota Vikings: No. 10 – Kevin Williams

While older fans of the Vikings are drawn to the mystique and legacy of the “Purple People Eaters”, younger fans know of a different dominating group of players on the defensive line: The Williams Wall.

Comprised of Pat and Kevin Williams, these two defensive tackles were nightmares for opposing offenses based on Pat’s ability to clog up running lanes and Kevin to get after the quarterback.

During his 13 years in the league, Williams accumulated 63 sacks, five interceptions, and 13 fumble recoveries, scoring four times off those plays. His production earned him six Pro Bowl nods and five All-Pro designations, as well as a place on the PFWA All-Rookie Team and the 50 Greatest Vikings.

The first-round pick of the Vikings in the 2003 NFL Draft spent 11 years with Minnesota before spending his final two years with the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints, but eventually signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Vikings.
