With safety Charles Woodson now in Oakland, Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams looks to the fill the leadership void in the team's secondary. "We know that when Charles was here, he had that role," Williams said earlier this off-season, via Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He was the leader of this group. He taught us things. And I'm going to keep that alive — I'm going to keep that alive. I'm going to come out and do the same thing. The younger guys usually come to me for things anyway. So whatever they need, I'm going to try to get those guys up to speed to play." Dunne writes: ' As the Packers head into training camp, Williams remains the most proven of the group, the most complete. For now, it’d be a surprise if another cornerback supplanted Williams as the top cover man. Another year removed from the severe nerve damage suffered in his shoulder Week 1 of the 2011 season, Williams will now need to inch closer to his 2010 form. With timely safety help, Williams effectively neutralized Johnson, Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson in six Packers wins. In a key, December NFC North win at Chicago -- after a week of trash talking and Christmas trees -- Williams helped hold Marshall to 56 yards. He was also burnt by Reggie Wayne and Marques Colston. The Packers probably weren't thrilled with the aforementioned, sloppy attempts at a tackle but they care a lot more about Williams' ability to spar with elite wideouts in coverage than mixing it up in run support. He's a cover corner. First and foremost. '
