Yeah, that guy. People are going to remember Marcus Williams’ infamous missed tackle against the Vikings in the 2017 playoffs, but Williams will show how that one play will not define him. Besides that mistake, Williams had a stellar rookie season, where he had over 70 tackles along with 4 interceptions. Williams also grabbed an interception in that dreaded playoff game. Look for Williams to come out extremely motivated in 2018, and watch out for a serious breakout. Williams emerged as a playmaker on a talented Saints Defense, and we will likely see more of the same in 2018.

Projected Stats: 81 tackles, 5 interceptions, 7 passes defensed

Runner Up: Malik Hooker, S, Indianapolis Colts
