He’s a good receiving back with quality hands. Has the durability to be a complete back that can play on all 3 downs. His best weapon in open field is his stiff arm and the way he eludes defenders with precise jump cuts. A hard runner with good balance & fluid hips. Consistently slashes the defense and eats up yards on off tackle schemes.
Lots of carries in his college career, might be an indication to a shorter NFL career. He has had some off the field issues but minor concern. He was suspended 1 game in 2014 for an underage drinking incident
Jamaal has all the qualities to be a bell cow running back. He has all the tools to be an elite back and a leader where ever he might land on draft day. Without question Williams is a steal in the mid rounds and should be an impact player from day one.
