Marcus Williams locked in as Jets' nickel corner
New York Jets cornerback Marcus Williams is locked in as the second outside corner in nickel packages, NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater believes.
Slater believes Williams will take over on the outside while Buster Skrine covers the slot in nickel, and he "wouldn't expect" that to change prior to Week 1. Former first-round pick Dee Milliner should push him in camp, but it sounds like Williams' spot is fairly secure. Williams recorded six interceptions in limited snaps last season.
The Jets' defense finished 2015 ranked sixth in Adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points per play. Our algorithms project Williams for 23.10 tackles and 1.83 interceptions in 2016.
