03/07/2012 - Quotes from Alabama's Pro Day, Offensive Lineman William Vlachos...On today's workout: "Yes, it was [a hard workout], pretty fast-paced, just trying to show out. We've all been trained for this specific type stuff, we're not exactly in the Nick Saban fourth quarter workout here. It was a little bit tough." On how toady went: "It went well. I've put on some weight, I weighed in at 319 [pounds] today. My 40 time was, I heard, five-flat, 5.1, I heard 5.19 - there are about 40 manual clocks out there.

01/04/2012 - In his final appearance in the Alabama media room, where he has held court for the past few years, center William Vlachos talked recently about how excited he is about playing in the Senior Bowl later this month in Mobile. He also talked about left tackle Barrett Jones, who didn't let a high ankle sprain stop him from playing the whole game on Nov. 5 in a 9-6 overtime loss to LSU. "Barrett on a hurt ankle is probably better than most people with two good ankles," Vlachos said. The fifth-year senior also talked about Alabama's unheralded defensive line. - Don Kausler Jr., Tuscaloosa Bureau

09/09/2011 - WEEK 2, FIVE MATCHUPS TO WATCH: 4. Alabama Interior Offensive Line vs. Penn State Defensive Tackles...Scouts heading to Happy Valley for this backend of a home-and-home between college football powers won't have to look too far away from the snap to see a strong set of match-ups of NFL prospects. Penn State defensive tackles Devon Still and junior Jordan Hill face off against strong Alabama interior linemen in center William Vlachos and left guard Chance Warmack. Still looks like an elite prospect on the hoof, but fought injuries and inconsistency throughout his career before showed life against Florida in the Outback Bowl (seven tackles, 3.5 for loss). To impress scouts, Still must handle the upper body strength and anchor of Warmack one-on-one and beat the block of smaller pivot man Vlachos to chase ballcarriers with quick hands and feet, instead of waiting for plays to come to him. He also needs to learn how to beat cut blocks, as RB Trent Richardson nearly flipped him on his back in pass protection once last year. - Chad Reuter, NFLDraftScout.com
