(WVUE) - His season may have ended in disappointment, but the truth is second year safety Marcus Williams is a rising star for both the Saints and the NFL. That's why he comes in at number 13 on our countdown.
Williams' rookie season was superb. The ball hawking safety finished with four interceptions and helped transform a defense from laughingstock to legitimate. More will be expected from Williams in year two. And he insists the way his season ended will now be his motivation to never be in that situation ever again.
