"With the fourth pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins select Trent 'Silverback' Williams, offensive tackle, Oklahoma."

Those were the words echoed throughout Radio City Music Hall by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell five years ago today.

Williams embraced the moment with his family then walked onto the stage, put on a Redskins hat, grabbed a burgundy No. 1 jersey and hugged Goodell – a trend that has since taken off with other first-round picks.

And since being drafted, Williams has solidified himself as one of the best offensive lineman in the league, recording three consecutive Pro Bowl appearances (2012-14).

Williams has also been named to the Top 100 Players list twice as well.
