More motivation for the Alabama standout edge rusher.

Tim Williams wreaked havoc for the Crimson Tide on the gridiron and posted solid numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine, but as of today, he can add father to list of marquee achievements.

The Baton Rouge, La., native welcomed a healthy baby girl – Zara Williams – and he took to Twitter to express his excitement. Williams turned in 19.5 sacks, 28.5 tackles for loss and 16 quarterback hurries in the last two seasons, including helping the Tide win a national championship in 2015 (10.5 sacks, 12.5 TFLs).

Per CBS, the 6-2 and 244-pound specimen is listed as the No. 4 outside linebacker in this year’s draft class and projects to be selected between the first and second round in late April.
