Williams is my biggest draft crush at the running back position this year…there’s nothing in his game that I dislike. He just wants to move the chains, whatever it takes. He bounces off contact like it’s nothing, goes 0-100 exceptionally quick and he almost has this second wind where if a defender is closing him down, he can just switch on the after burners. Effective as both a runner and a receiver in such a tricky conference, Williams has all the tools that the Eagles are looking for.

He’s not a hard-cut guy and a poor showing at the NFL combine will raise question marks. However, I feel his poise, decision making and sheer heart, override that and the Eagles could rest easy knowing Williams is there to do it all in 2019 and won’t cost them a pretty penny.
