Leonard Williams. He could be on the verge of becoming primetime.


Recommended Posts

He's 24 years young and ready to feast. I loved Ellis, Wilkerson, Sheldon and Snacks etc but I personally feel and believe Leonard is the most talented of them all and still has more potential than any of them, ever had. 

Here's why. It's something we as fans have yet to witness. But line up a pass rushing nightmare and pass rushing specialist such as a Josh Allen or heaven forbid Nick Boss right over Leonard Williams; and watch what happens. I dare you to add a dangerous pass rusher as an OLB within a 3-4 defense and you put him lined up right over Leonard Williams and it's a force that will cause problems. 

That is all. It's not right to talk down this kid who's never once had an outside pass rusher to work alongside of... as he's had to fight within the trenches, without one.

I think it's a no brainier to take either of Boss/Allen pick #3. Not just for an outside pass rusher either, but to also tap into Leonard's full ability. Line up an electric pass rusher behind Leonard and watch Leonard himself dominate behind the L.O.S. I don't think it's a question either but instead only a matter of time.

I admit I am not the biggest L. Williams fan, but I am more than willing to see him in G. Williams defense and with more talent beside him. He is young and talented enough, just a matter of how badly he wants to improve and become elite.

His past Dc's have done him no favors.

He has been disappointing in his own right.

I see no reason to think he will suddenly after 4 years blossom when his tackles have dropped the last two years and he has 7 sacks in the last two years.

Great if he does though.

Oh oh....expect the downvotes and buttfumbles from the rabble.

I don't care. Just excited about the possibility of landing a pass rusher @ 3rd overall. Which makes me think of Leonard Williams. Line up a deadly pass rushee right over Leonard and I don't think it'll be possible to stop him. With a stud pass rusher @ OLB within a 3-4 D I don't feel people will sing the same tune as they've sung about Williams ever since being forced into a 3-4 DE without any help from the outside. Hah. And fans harp about his sack #'s? Give us Allen or Boss and forget about sack #'s because Williams will make a living behind the L.O.S moving forward. I've been wrong before and will be way off again but that much I'm confident in.

I will give him one more year to get his sh!t together.  His last chance to prove he is elite, which no one can argue he has been.

Someone should remind Williams , no sacks, no prime time.

Find me just 3 DE's within a 3-4 defense and make sure those 3 DE's within a 3-4 defense never had an elite 3-4 OLB as a pass rusher and I'll be shocked to see them with big time sack #'s. 

Ever since we've drafted Leonard Williams I believe he's A.) lost all of Wilkerson, Richardson and Harrison on his D-Line. B.) Forced into a position that rarely ever produces large sack #'s (3-4 DE) and C.) Never once had an explosive OLB of a pass rusher lined up directly over him and D.) Fans want "sacks"? Na. It doesn't work like that. 

I believe in Leonard Williams. Give him an outside pass rusher and he'll make a living dominating the trenches and his #'s behind the line of scrimmage will flourish.

3 DEs “within a 3-4 defense” that have put up better sack numbers than Leo Williams.

1) Mo Wilk

2) Henry Anderson

3) Sheldon Richardson

Im hoping he’ll be a monster in a more attacking D.

I think he’ll he the same player he’s always been.

I hope we trade him for a 2nd while we have the chance.

And replace him with who? Stevie McClendon or another 2nd round bust COME ON MAN

We all hope you’re right.

Gotta get the sixth overall pick DT some weppinz and the sixth overall pick SS some weppinz and look out

Actually, yes. The linebacking crew has struggled year after year. I like Williamson and Mosley will be a great leader. And edge will indeed bring a needed dimension to the pass rush and take some pressure off Leo. Not to mention actually allow different 3-4 fronts to be utilized effectively.

no other player in the league has nearly the amount of QB hits while generating so few sacks. that’s why adding a legit pass rusher is so important in the draft- he will feast on leo’s leftovers and could easily have a huge rookie year like aldon smith did sliding in next to justin smith

Oddly enough, you just made the case to bring Mo back.

He fits all the criteria, while being a less expensive option.

Mo is a free agent still living in N.J. 

I think Mo is a talented player. 

The problem is he doesn't seem to care to be the best player he can be.

Mo half-assing it on the field still produced more than Sheldon or Leo.

Maybe Gregg Williams could light a fire under Mo.
