Jets rookie Leonard Williams was compared to Former Patriot Richard Seymour

Yesterday Leonard Williams the teams first round pick had an impressive game racking up several tackles for loss, one and a half sacks and a safety.

His performance led to high praise from  Veteran offensive lineman Willie Colon.

“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 [body], and sky’s the limit for the kid.”

While this is only preseason Williams is not trying to get ahead of himself.

“I know preseason doesn’t really count, and also it was like a wide-open,” Williams said. “I think it was a missed assignment on their part. But it still felt great.”
