The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes that Washington State redshirt junior RB James Williams is a potential mid-round target.
The positives for Williams are apparent as Ledyard notes. He's an excellent receiver -- he caught 83 passes in his redshirt junior year -- and his variety of moves make him one of the most difficult tailbacks to tackle in this class. There are issues here, however, as Ledyard points out that he's never been a bell-cow, has issues with vision and can struggle in pass protection. The latter could really hurt Williams, as he's going to be viewed as a third-down back, and a third-down back has to be able to handle the blitz. "He won’t be coveted early, but I would expect his stock to rise with a strong Combine, as he is virtually un-talked about in NFL Draft circles currently," Ledyard writes. "Williams is the exact type of player I would target in the mid-rounds at running back, as his skill set should translate easily to the NFL." Jan 8 - 8:54 PM
