Jamaal Williams NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’0 211lbs
- Decisive runner
- North/South style
- Ball security
- Always keeps legs churning
Analysis: Jamaal Williams has the ideal NFL size and frame scouts look for in a back. He is able to bend at point of impact and attack with decent leverage. Uses his stiff arm as a weapon to escape tackles on an angle. Decisive runner, he sees a lane and goes all-in. The exact opposite of a shifty, dancy-type back. Keeps his feet churning through contact with an above average ball security with a fumble rate of 140 (one fumble every 140 carries).
- Banger, not a consistent tackle breaker
- Forward lean
- Lacks ideal speed
Analysis: Jamaal Williams knows he’s a bull with the ball which makes him ram through running lanes crashing into blockers rather than shifting with the contours. Doesn’t have athleticism to create early yardage for himself. Missing a functional jump cut for sudden shift from gap to gap once line of scrimmage muddies. Hit or miss with run lanes he chooses. Excessive forward lean creates issues with contact balance. He doesn’t have the speed necessary to get to the edge in the NFL.
