Young Quinnen Williams can’t contain himself. How could you blame him?

Just nine months ago, the kid was on nobody’s radar, ready to take the beastly spotlight for Alabama. Today, he’s the No. 3 overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The young New York Jets employee is beaming after meeting his favorite Jets veteran players.


Williams, 21, will man down the nose tackle spot in Gregg Williams’s defense. While traditionally light for an NFL nose tackle, his prototype takes on a sideline-to-sideline lightning-fast stud who fits the coveted Aaron Donald mold.

The kid can literally play any spot on the line.

In 15 games with the Crimson Tide a year ago, Williams put forth eight sacks and 71 total tackles with an incredible 19.5 behind the line of scrimmage. Sliding in next to Leonard Williams and Henry Anderson allows Big Q to fit like a glove.

In addition, the kid is willing to return kicks:

Big Cat, Sam Darnold, Le’Veon Bell, Jamal Adams and others—the rook is glowing. Make no mistake, however, Quinnen Williams belongs, and he already understands it.

But hey, May is the perfect time to get the starstruck emotions out of the way.
