Williams, an Australia native, is a defensive lineman for Alabama, but earlier this week he proved he could easily participate in the Strongest Man competition.

(AP)According to tweets from himself and teammates, Williams benched 600 pounds Thursday. Yes, that's six plates — on either side of the bar. Check out the photo, the bar is bending like a cartoon.

Just call him Jesse ver Jesseson.

"I saw @ThaMonstar (Jesse Williams) dominate 600 lbs on the bench this morning... Incredible"tweeted Alabama long snapper Cade Foster, who benched a stunning 455 pounds.

To put Williams feat in perspective, former Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe maxed out at 500 pounds during this year's NFL Scouting Combine.

Williams started every game for the Crimson Tide last season. He had 24 tackles, four tackles for loss, three quarterback hurries and a pass breakup.

I'm sure the opposing offensive linemen who have seen this picture just can't wait to face Williams this fall.
