Wilson, Langi, and Ty’Son Williams show their worth: BYU Football Pro Tracker Preseason, Week 2

NFL teams are starting to make cuts and several former BYU cougars are fighting to keep their roster spots.  In week two of the preseason most of the 22 BYU alumni in-action showed they still have something to offer as teams start paring down their rosters from 85 to 80 to next week’s 53.

Standout Performances for Preseason Week 2

Harvey Langi had another impressive outing for New England with five tackles, one tackle for loss, a sack, and an interception.  Ty’Son Williams made a compelling argument to be RB3 for Baltimore as he rushed 10 times for 47 yards and a touchdown while also catching two passes for 15 yards.  And Zach Wilson showed he was deserving of the no. 2 draft pick as he went 9-for-11 passing for 128 yards and two touchdowns.  And don’t forget about Kai Nacua’s monster sack (see highlights at the bottom of this article).
