Is Leonard Williams of the Jets a Top 100 Player in the NFL?

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports has ranked his top 100 players in the NFL. In this group, five Jets made the cut.

20. Brandon Marshall WR / New York Jets

35. Muhammad Wilkerson DE / New York Jets
57. Darrelle Revis CB / New York Jets
87. Sheldon Richardson DE / New York Jets
99. Leonard Williams DT / New York Jets
Williams is the most interesting addition to this group. The other guys all have star track records. Marshall and Wilkerson benefit from their big 2015 seasons. Revis and Richardson were knocked for their good but not great campaigns.

Williams is more of a wild card. You likely remember how many people said he was the most talented player in the entire 2015 Draft. His rookie season was promising. Now that he has his feet wet in the league, how good can he be? Can he make the leap into star territory? It seems likely to be one of the pieces of the puzzle the Jets need to fall into place to avoid a decline.
