There is plenty of mutual respect here, and with good reason. Both Williams and Sanders have been outstanding this season, and both have a future in the NFL. Williams definitely is not giving Sanders any ammunition for a disrespect narrative in the future, either.
Williams is viewed as the likely No. 1 pick in next April’s NFL Draft. At this rate, he may win a second straight Heisman Trophy first, too.
