SALT LAKE CITY – Every offseason, the NFL releases its Top 100 players list voted on solely by the players.

Former BYU running back and current New Orleans Saint Jamaal Williams made his first appearance on the list at No. 95.

Williams led the entire NFL in rushing touchdowns in 2022.

He was a big part of a potent Detroit rushing attack next to D’Andre Swift, Justin Jackson, and Craig Reynolds.
