But the amount of bitching about the trade by Giants fans has made it seem like Leonard Williams is the Ereck Flowers of defensive linemen or some shit. Lets at least see what a guy with Williams' skillset looks like with a couple new teammates the Giants cap room and draft can give him along with having this maniac as his position coach:
