The Washington Redskins anchor at offensive line, Trent Williams, gets the nod for a fourth time as one of the best players in the league. He was named as one of the NFL's top 100 players for 2016. This year he was ranked No.45 on that list, up two spots from last year, 15 spots from the year before, and 54 spots from 2013.

Williams has been a constant force for the Redskins offensive line ever since he was drafted fourth overall by the Washington Redskins in 2010 and as a result, he's become a four time NFL Pro Bowler (2012-2015) and offensive captain for the team (2011-2015).

The Redskins giving him a new contract was the best move they could've done for the future of their offensive line. The one thing that has always been an issue, and something that has been talked about by fans and NFL analysts alike, is the team lacking a formidable offensive line. Williams, along with recent draft picks Morgan Moses, Spencer Long, Brandon Scherff, and others will continue to improve under OL coach Bill Callahan.

As I said earlier, Trent Williams is the leader, the offensive line goes as he goes. See what players on the Redskins and others around the league had to say about him here.
