The Jets may not have a problem replacing suspended 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year Sheldon Richardson, after the performance by rookie Leonard Williams on Friday night. The 2015 sixth overall pick in the draft notched his first sack on Friday night, resulting in a safety and the Jets’ first two points of their 30-22 win over the Atlanta Falcons.


After the game the whole team noticed Williams impact. "He had two big plays," Jets coach Todd Bowles said. "You saw the big plays, but I gotta look at the film to see how he did on every other play. But he did make two big plays and kind of turned on the light for everybody."

It didn't stop there as some of his teammates compared him to a future Hall of Famer. "He's big, he's big-bodied," veteran offensive lineman Willie Colon said. "He's so young, he doesn't realize the potential he actually has. He has that Richard Seymour-type body, that prototype, and sky's the limit for the kid."

Williams would go on to stuff the stat book by the end of the victory.  He met Jason Babin at the quarterback for a second sack and finished with five tackles, including another tackle for loss and three quarterback hits.
