While the NFL season hasn't officially started yet all signs point to former Washington Football Team offensive lineman Trent Williams returning to his All-Pro form.
Williams joined the San Franciso 49ers this offseason via trade after a very tumultuous ending to his career in the nation's capital.
After the reports coming out of 49ers training camp, Williams is still dominant.
"Nick Bosa is going to love it when the regular season starts," The Athletic's 49ers' Insider Matt Barrows said. "He went 0-4 vs. Trent Williams in one-on-one pass rush drills just now. Williams swallowed him a couple of times."
"Which is to say, Williams has looked very, very good."
"Trent Williams was excellent today and got the better of Nick Bosa in four one-on-one reps," Sacramento Bee reporter Chris Biderman said. "Bosa blew up an outside running play but otherwise was quiet in 11s (based on what I could see from a half mile away through binoculars)."
Bosa, the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, has already had an incredible start to his career — Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year, Pro-Bowl selection, nine sacks, and 47 tackles (11 for loss). However, Williams might be his biggest test yet.
NBC Sports Bay Area's, Matt Maiocco reported three days ago how Williams was dominating Bosa in practice and it doesn't seem like anything has changed since then.
"Williams was the clear head-to-head winner on Monday," Maiocco said. "Once he got his hands on Bosa, Williams made sure he did not go anywhere. Williams locked up Bosa in pass protection to allow Garoppolo plenty of time to deliver a deep completion to Kendrick Bourne near the end of practice."
"On nine one-on-one pass-rush situations, Williams did not allow a quarterback pressure."
Williams admittedly has looked forward to the matchups against the emerging star, saying "He's going to be a pivotal tool for me to use to knock the rust off."
Imagine that, using one of the best defensive linemen in the game as a mere tune-up for real competition.
"It's just fun to watch when you see a tackle running downfield and moving like a linebacker," Bosa said "He looks impressive just in person."
