Williard was signed as a rookie free agent by the Tennessee Titans after the 2013 NFL Draft and spent the season on the team's practice squad. He made national news during that training camp when he saved a family from a burning car on I-40.

He had 207 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, three sacks, six quarterback pressures, ten pass breakups, one caused fumble, and one recovered fumble over 52 career games at Clemson. As a senior, he had 95 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, four quarterback pressures, six pass breakups and one fumble recovery in 12 starts.

The Loris (S.C.) native graduated with a degree in sociology from Clemson.
