NFL Top 100: Trent Williams #60

LT Trent Williams is the latest Redskins player to be voted into the NFL's Top 100.

The NFL Top 100 was started in 2011 and is voted on by current NFL players.  Last season featured 4 Redskins on the Top 100 list.  Trent Williams was the first player highlighted at #99.  The next Redskins player on the list was London Fletcher at #86.  Alfred Morris earned #64 from his peers following a rookie season performance where he broke the Redskins single season rushing record, and helped the team win the division for the first time since 1999.  Robert Griffin III was the final Redskins player on the Top 100 list in 2013, and he was voted #15 following his Rookie of the Year campaign.

Pierre Garçon was the first Redskins player to be named to this year's NFL Top 100 list, coming in at #80.  The next Redskins player to make the list at #63 is former Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson.

The third Redskins player to make the 2014 list is LT Trent Williams.  Williams continues to be one of the top Left Tackles in the league and was voted into the Pro Bowl for the second year in a row following last season.  Williams was presented by Eagles' Mychal Kendricks and Najee Goode, and Giant Damontre Moore.  The running theme of their commentary was that Trent Williams is big, and surprisingly quick, and he is tenacious when he gets his hands on you, and plays with an attitude.

These are all traits that have made Williams one of the top Redskins players over the last few years.  Williams is a big part of the Redskins running game, and is instrumental in breaking open holes for RB Alfred Morris.  Coach Gruden seems to be bringing in players with more size for the offensive line, and Trent Williams has the size, speed, and talent to fit into any scheme the new coach plans on running.  Trent Williams has been the anchor to the offensive Line for the last few years, and that will not change going forward.
