Many fans including myself, did not think that Kevin Williams would play as large of a role has he does in the New Orleans Saints defense.

Williams has provided a shadow of the ability that made him a perennial pro-bowl defensive tackle and a member of the 2000’s all-decade team.

He has 25 tackles, two forced fumbles, and ranks as the 15th best defensive tackle in the NFL. He is in the top 20 in run defense and defensive stops.

Williams is in the top 10 in the NFL in batted passes at the line of scrimmage and the top 25 in pass rushing and quarterback hurries among defensive tackles in the NFL.
