Jets rookie Quinnen Williams has awesome attitude about meeting new teammates
In addition to being one of the best defensive players in the NFL Draft, the New York Jets also got one of the most enthusiastic and humble in former Alabama star Quinnen Williams.
Williams gave the New York media a glimpse of his infectious personality on Friday, as the defensive end openly talked about how giddy he has been to meet his new teammates. He said it has been “crazy” to meet some of the Jets’ best players, and it’s impossible not to smile while listening to the No. 3 overall pick openly admit how star-struck he has been.

“I met Le’Veon Bell yesterday, and I’m like, ‘Whoa, that’s Le’Veon Bell, the No. 1 running back in the NFL,”‘ Williams said with an ear-to-ear grin. “It’s just crazy. … I know I’m one of the people too, but I don’t really look at it like that.”
A lot of NFL players probably feel that way during their rookie seasons, but the majority of them would never admit it. Williams is supposed to be a fierce competitor who is confident he can overpower the guys lining up opposite him, but his press conference was a friendly reminder that you can do all of that while taking some time to soak up living out your dream.
The Jets may have been hiding Williams from the media a bit after they drafted him, but we need as many interviews from him as we can get.
