Trent Williams Will Only Face Pro Bowl Defensive Ends 62.5 Percent Of The Time

There are trials by fire, and then there is being a starting rookie left tackle in the National Football League.

Kevin Ewoldt has a list of the defensive ends Trent Williams will be facing in his rookie season in the NFL, and it's not pretty. Assuming all the opposing defensive ends stay healthy, Williams will be going toe-to-toe with Pro Bowlers 10 times this season. In his first four weeks alone, he has to face DeMarcus Ware, Mario Williams, Chris Long and Trent Cole.

That doesn't leave a lot of gray area to start this season. Either Trent Williams is going to impress us right away or Donovan McNabb is going to have to get comfortable with the grass at FedEx Field, because he'll be on it more often than he's on his own bed.
