Leonard Williams has become one of the Giants most productive players this season and he said it’s all part of the process.
The sixth-year defensive lineman leads the team with 5.0 sacks, seven tackles for loss and 11 quarterback hits. The sack total is 10 times greater than the half-sack he had in the entire 2019 season and just 2.0 sacks shy of the career-high total he registered as a pro sophomore with the Jets in 2016. Williams has been credited with 32 tackles (16 solo).
“I think this guy has done a really good job with everything we’ve asked him to do,” coach Joe Judge said. “He’s playing good, fundamental technique and good, sound execution within the schemes. He’s using his hands very well to get off blocks, he plays with a high motor. He’s really using his pass rush moves and his counters off it to get him to the ball. Leonard’s a guy that obviously we knew had a tremendous amount of potential. He has a great attitude. This guy comes to work every day with his hair on fire, really into his football. The team loves being around him, he brings a lot of energy to the building. He’s fun to coach. I think this guy has really helped our team just on all avenues, but for his own specific game, I don’t see any area of his game that hasn’t been improved this year. I think (defense line coach Sean) Spence(r) has done a phenomenal job working with him.”
