P.J. Williams, Cornerback

Like Tull, much was expected from P.J. Williams as he approached his first season as a rookie. Unfortunately, he ended up spending the entire 2015 season on the injured reserve list because of a hamstring problem.

There is a lot to look forward to when it comes to Williams. The third-round pick, who many had going off the board in the mid to late part of the 1st Round, should have more than enough opportunities to break into the starting lineup. He could play an important role in the Saints nickel packages and could even be asked to lock down the outside as he did throughout his collegiate career.

Only time will tell if P.J. Williams is going to make an impact in 2016, but he should definitely be a guy to watch for as the Saints try to improve on their historically bad passing defense.
