Running Back Trayveon Williams, Texas A&M

If you were to simply look at Travyeon Williams‘ listed height, weight and Combine results, you would probably agree that he doesn’t necessarily look like an NFL running back. Thankfully, he plays much, much bigger and smarter than those numbers.

It’s true, Williams is undersized at 5-foot-8 and 205 pounds, but he does so much right at the position and it’s impossible to ignore the fit within the Bears offense.

Williams can catch the ball and pass block — two things you have to do within an offense featuring so much movement. Already, he’s a step ahead of some other prospects in his class.

Looking at how he runs the ball, though, it’s a thing of beauty. Williams is a patient runner who waits for his blockers and picks his lanes wisely. At times, his style reminds me a lot of guys like Le’Veon Bell or Matt Forte. Speed isn’t their top characteristic. It’s their ability to stay calm, patient and hit the holes at just the right time. That’s Williams in a nutshell.

Because of his intelligence, he’s able to rip off those big runs just about every game, it seems. He is consistent with how he plays the game, and due to that consistency, his numbers have stayed as such. Right now, Williams is projected as a third or fourth round pick. If he’s there in the fourth, the Bears would be getting phenomenal value.
