RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sheldon Richardson's off-field issues could result in a suspension to begin the 2016 season – the second season in a row in which Richardson would begin the year with a suspension – and Williams stands to benefit as a result. The blue-chip talent unexpectedly fell to the Jets in the 2015 draft, and he did well for himself as a rookie by exceeding 60 tackles while logging 809 snaps. He only turned 22 in May, so Williams should continue to develop and make the most of the enhanced opportunity he's been given by Richardson's off-field transgressions.
Williams, who the Jets picked sixth overall in the 2015 draft, will battle for playing time at defensive end as a rookie behind Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson.
