Mehta’s Top 20 Jets Countdown: No. 8 Avery Williamson can stop the run, but can he be a three-down linebacker?

Williamson, however, should be a significant piece to the run-stuffing puzzle. Bowles hit the nail on the head by calling the former Titan a “tackling machine.” Williamson, who has 59 career regular-season starts, was as reliable as they come with only 14 missed tackles on 174 tackle attempts in the past two seasons, according to Pro Football Focus.
