Blewett’s Blitz breaks down how New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams is quickly becoming a star and more Raiders film.

Young Quinnen Williams is quickly becoming a star. One glance at the New York Jets-Las Vegas Raiders game tape allows that realization to sink in. A few hours of film review provides a much fuzzier feeling.

Williams, 22, faced a trying rookie campaign. Drafted third overall by Mike Maccagnan a couple of drafts ago, the kid just wasn’t yet ready for the rigors of everyday life in the NFL.

It was a struggle at times. Instead of separating himself from the crowd, the Alabama product simply blended in. This season has seen a great change in that area. With six sacks, 13 quarterback hits, nine tackles for loss and 45 total tackles, Williams is excelling in many facets.

Against Las Vegas, the kid sacked Derek Carr once and hit him three times. He’s now tallied three sacks over the last three games while playing as part of one of the league’s worst defenses.

Additionally, Blewett’s Blitz takes a look at Sam Darnold‘s rebound. Darnold threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in what was seemingly his best game in ages. Does Blewett think Darnold’s career is salvageable to the point of fulfilling that No. 3 pick status?

Elsewhere, rookie cornerback Bryce Hall didn’t exactly impress the same way he did the two games prior. He whiffed on a tackle against Darren Waller and saw him beat a few times. However, it wasn’t all bad for the kid.

Blewett’s Blitz dives into those topics and more in his latest film breakdown edition:
