The NFL Top 100 list is coming out, and the New Orleans Saints are already represented. There has been one mainstay, and one newcomer for the Saints so far.
The NFL is doing something a little different this year. Instead of revealing the top 100 players list (as of course voted by the players) on their TV special, they are revealing them via Twitter, with the video clips being available via NFL+, which supposedly is to plug the product. In any event, two New Orleans Saints players have made the cut (so far), and it'll be interesting to see if anyone who else joins from the Saints and where given the two names revealed.
Jamaal Williams clocks in as the 95th best player, and it's easy to see why. The veteran running back came seemingly out of nowhere in 2022 to lead the NFL with 17 touchdowns on the season. His singing, along with Derek Carr, are huge reasons for Saints fans to be optimistic about the 2023 season. Williams has a chance to have an even bigger role than he did last year with the Detroit Lions, considering the cloud of uncertainty hovering above Alvin Kamara.
The other Saints player featured has a face that is a bit more familiar.
The number 89 player on the list is cornerback Marshon Lattimore, who is easily a top-ten player in the league at his position, if not better. He is so consistently good to the point where he has almost become an underrated afterthought, particularly with all of the new talented whippersnappers entering the league as of late at the cornerback position.
There are still some more New Orleans Saints players we can expect to be featured, with a name like Tyrann Mathieu springing to mind. Depending on what happens though, it may be an eye-opener for the national consciousness on just how good this team can truly be in 2023.
