5 players on the Bengals roster who are being vastly underrated
By Eli Zink
2. Jonah Williams
Coming in at number two is the highly talented tackle on the left side of the line who has all the talent in the world but just needs to put it all together to become an elite-level player in the league.
Jonah Williams was given an overall PFF ranking of 77.1 last season being among the top tackles in the league but with the additions of the offensive line this offseason, he is due for a breakout season being one of the smaller names on the offensive line this year. He played 1,044 snaps last year with only four penalties and eight sacks.
However, with the huge additions to the line, he will be overlooked by defensives giving him the ability to shine in the upcoming season. He is no stranger to the big stage as he was a huge player on the Alabama roster during his tenure there.
Williams played in the College Football Playoff every year that he was at Alabama so he brings a certain level of poise to the line that hasn’t been seen before by many of his contributors on the offensive line. He is due for a better season than last as now that the Bengals have strengthened their line he will no longer be the only solid player on the line.
This means he will be able to show out in both his pass blocking and run blocking which have both been improved upon majorly during his time in the NFL.
