METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

In the NFL a short-term memory is a must. Cornerback P.J. Williams got burned for an early score, Saturday, by the Texans' Will Fuller to put the Saints behind 7-0.

"On the touchdown he outside released. I was even with him, then he was to get on top of me. I didn't locate the ball as good as I should of, he made a good play on me," said Williams.

Williams erased the score from his mind, and caught redemption on a fourth-down attempt. Intercepting Brock Osweiler by out-jumping the receiver.

"Oh man it was good, good feeling," said a smiling Williams. "I definitely wanted to come back and make a play to make up for that. That was my goal. Being able to do it was definitely a good thing."

Williams came in to training camp as a primary backup, but with the release of Keenan Lewis, Williams has a shot to start for the Black and Gold.

"Every day I was taking baby steps to get myself better. Not only be a good player on our defense, but a good player throughout the league. I'm looking to get better for myself. Wherever I'm going to be, going to look in helping the team, that's my mindset," said Williams.

    The time has come for my third and final mock draft. Free agency is mostly complete and while the Saints still have some needs they will remain committed to their ‘best player’ approach. Here’s my best guess on how things shake out. Round One (27th) Mike Gesicki, Tight End Penn St. First things first, I really wanted cornerback Josh Jackson with this selection. I just don’t think he is going to be around at 27. If he is available, then the Saints sh...more>>
