Trent Williams and DeSean Jackson honored in NFL's top 100 list
The 2014 season certainly didn't go as planned for the Washington Redskins, but two players stood out for their individual performances. Trent Williams and DeSean Jackson had outstanding seasons, and their performances did not go unrecognized. Both players were voted to the NFL Network's Top 100 players list, determined by their peers. Williams and Jackson were voted on as the 47th and 50th best players, respectively.
Williams graded out as one of the best left tackles in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. Per PFF, Williams finished as their 13th-best left tackle and 18th-best offensive tackle overall in 2014. He allowed just four sacks and 25 total quarterback pressures in 15 games. Williams finished as PFF's top overall offensive tackle in 2013, and he hasn't finished outside of their top 30 overall since the 2010 season. Williams has cracked the NFL's Top 100 list in two additional seasons prior to this one.
Jackson had an outstanding debut season with the Redskins. Jackson averaged 20.9 yards per reception, the second-highest mark of his career. He racked up 1,169 receiving yards and six touchdowns in the process of emerging as the Redskins' No. 1 option in the passing game. This is Jackson's fourth appearance on the NFL's Top 100 list.
