The Kansas City Chiefs are literally in the middle of a dynasty, as they try to win another title this season. To do that, they will need all hands on deck, including the rookies.

It starts in the offseason. It may not seem like it, but these games mean something as well. This is how we will see how the backups will be when the games that count get here. This is how we get our first glimpse of the rookies, and on Saturday, against the Chicago Bears, we will need to watch for Joshua Williams.

Chiefs’ Williams listed as a player to watch

According to Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus, everyone should be on the lookout for Joshua Williams, the rookie cornerback out of Fayetteville State University.

Here is what Renner said about Williams:

“There are so many possibly impactful rookies in Chiefs camp that it was difficult to narrow this down to just one player. Williams is ultimately the choice here because of how intriguing his performance was at the Senior Bowl. Hailing from D-II Fayetteville State, Williams didn’t blink when going against top competition in Mobile, Alabama. He’s a long press cornerback and is exactly what defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is looking for at the position.”

The Chiefs love what they have seen from Williams in camp. As a fourth-round pick from this past draft, the Chiefs should get a great return on investment.

Williams will definitely be a player to watch during preseason, as he will get a ton of opportunities to show what he is capable of. Against the Bears, he should do well, as their pass game isn’t great. He covers better players everyday in practice, and holds his own, than what he will see on Saturday.

While Williams may not start during the regular season, if everything goes right in terms of health, he can be a great backup, and potentially be a starter in the future. With Trent McDuffie, L’Jarius Sneed, and Rashad Fenton, Williams will be on the bench. However, that does not mean he won’t get to play this year.

The older guys on the team are helping him as well.

“Go. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes… Go out there and show what you’ve got. Make a play,” Justin Reid told reporters on Thursday when asked about what advice he would give the young defensive backs.

Williams is making plays in camp as we speak. No, literally, he just broke up a pass from Henne to Skyy Moore.

The Chiefs love the potential he has, and it will be interesting to see how he plays in real football action over the next few weeks.
