A former 2022 fourth-round pick, Joshua Williams hasn't seen a lot of playing time during his Chiefs tenure. Even though he's only missed one game across his first two regular seasons, the ex-Fayetteville State product only started six of those games while playing less than 40% of defensive snaps.

Having said that, Williams could see more opportunities if his offseason performance is anything to judge.

During OTAs, the 24-year-old defender was disrupting players and even had an 11-on-11 red-zone interception back on June 7. He did a good job at keeping up with the Chiefs' offensive weapons, which is encouraging for a player who Pro Football Focus listed as Kansas City's breakout candidate for the 2024 campaign.

Fortunately, Williams' success has bled into the mandatory minicamp sessions. He was Sweeney's top-rated defender on Day 2 after breaking up two passes from Mahomes that likely would've been touchdowns, including one red-zone target that was sent to Brown.

With defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo in his corner, the best of Williams might be yet to come. Hopefully, he keeps making big plays in training camp because the confidence that stems from them could be enough to take his game to new heights.
