The secondary, among the biggest weak points of the 2016-17 Saints team last season, looks to make a big leap with the help of newly acquired Marcus Williams. Marcus Williams, the former Utah FS, has put his talents on full display.
Writers across the Saints board have reported over the past few hours that Marcus Williams is simply incredible. The second round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft performed phenomenally in today’s portion of Organized Team Activities or OTAs. The general consensus was that Williams was just everywhere he needed to be. Not only did Williams succeed at locating the ball and being in the desired location, Williams also had a few notable pass breakups. To put it at the very least Williams is a ball hawk, and deserves all of the recognition he is receiving for the talent he possesses.
To be completely honest, it doesn’t surprise me Marcus Williams is turning heads this quickly in camp. Marcus Williams was a ball-hawking freak of nature when he played at Utah, and I fully expect this phenomenal aspect of his to continue for the New Orleans Saints. The Saints desperately need change for the better this season, and Marcus Williams, among others, could provide that for this team.
If all goes well hopefully these new additions could help make the New Orleans Saints this upcoming season. These additions could not only make the New Orleans Saints stronger as a whole but help push the team farther than they accomplished last year, possibly making the playoffs.
