Now entering his ninth season in the NFL, it's fair to say Trent Williams has seen it all.

However, the six-time Pro Bowler says there's one part of his job that has never stopped exciting him: seeing the fear in a defensive back's eyes as he runs to block them on a screen play.

When asked by 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier what his favorite thing to do on the field is, Williams said there's nothing quite like frightening a defenseless DB. 

"I love getting out on screens, I love playing out in space," Williams said. "Just the look on the DBs' faces when they see me coming, and they realize how fast I can get up on them. I really enjoy that, I do." 

"It gets me out of the monotonous of hitting your head up against somebody who's two yards away from you. Getting able to run and go full speed for once."
