The guy has had a very good camp for Gang Green Dan Leberfeld

Florham Park – Jets cornerback Marcus Williams is having a very good training camp.

The second-year North Dakota State-product has very good instincts, and gets his hands on a lot of footballs.

If there was as a stat for most defensed passes in Jets camp, cornerback Buster Skrine or Williams would likely be neck-and-neck for the lead.

Williams had two terrific plays in Monday’s practice.

On about a 20-yard pass to Saalim Hakim down the left hash-mark, Williams read the play perfectly, and knocked the throw away. Then he had a Pick Six on an out-route to Quincy Enunwa.

It was a very smart move by the former Jets’ regime signing him to their practice squad last September 26, and then promoting him to the active roster a month later. He started eight games for the Jets last season and held his own.

He’s an aggressive cornerback with good route recognition and ball skills (21 picks in college). He’s also very willing in run support.
