— The Arizona Cardinals’ roster is full of talent, but the biggest name to have a prominent role in the team’s 2016 Super Bowl run was undrafted rookie cornerback Marcus Williams.
On Monday, Williams will be honored at the team hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, for his efforts during training camp.
He will receive the Super Bowl MVP trophy at halftime of Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, and will also be presented with a pair of Arizona State University awards, the league announced.
Williams is one of just three rookies to be named to the Pro Bowl since 2009.
His five interceptions in 2014 and five interceptions the following year earned him the AFC Defensive Rookie of the Year award.
Williams had a career-high 14 pass breakups during his time with the Cardinals last season, which is also the most of any rookie since the NFL began tracking those statistics in the 1990s.
The Pro Bowl honors will be presented to Williams by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
He also was named to Super Bowl 49 MVP voting, which took place last season.
Williams will be recognized by a host of other notable players including the New York Giants’ Victor Cruz, New England Patriots’ Malcolm Butler, Seattle Seahawks’ Christine Michael and New Orleans Saints’ Brandin Cooks.
The Cardinals were led by cornerback Patrick Peterson and quarterback Drew Brees in their run to Super Big 12 Conference titles last season and will likely have a strong defense again this season.
Williams has the second-best coverage grade among Cardinals rookies behind rookie corner Marcus Williams, who had a +1.2 grade on pass deflections in his rookie year.
Williams and Peterson will be joined by a slew of other Cardinals’ defensive backs, who will also receive recognition.
Safety Tyrann Mathieu, cornerback Damarious Randall and linebacker Tyrann Mathis will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Arizona Cardinal football team’s 2017 season will be the first of its kind in the country.
The Cardinals are expected to host the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLVIII.
