Guy reminds me of Warrick Dunn in so many ways. He's not AS explosive as Dunn is/was, but what are your guy's thoughts on him? He could be had in the 2nd-4th rounds of this years draft. He's 5'9" 202lbs.


Some of his stats:

Rushing-

YEAR TEAM ATT YDS AVG LNG TD FD FUM LOST
2004 OSU 6 20 3.3 8 0 0 0 0
2005 OSU 299 1321 4.4 57 13 0 0 0
2006 OSU 296 1307 4.4 28 12 0 0 0
2007 OSU 142 642 4.5 54 7 0 0 0

Receiving-


YEAR TEAM REC YDS AVG LNG TD FD FUM LOST
2004 OSU 2 19 9.5 17 0 0 0 0
2005 OSU 37 316 8.5 30 1 0 0 0
2006 OSU 43 276 6.4 19 1 0 0 0
2007 OSU 24 100 4.2 13 1 0 0 0

Here's the link I know these are a pain to read

He doesn't fumble...He's carried the load ever since Jackson has left OSU. Averaged over 4 yards a carry each year. His only downfall is his height, but look at what Dunn has done in professional tackle football.

Williams is only 5'10 so i dont think an inch is going to hurt his draft status

He handles quite the load in College football, he had like 11-12 touches on a drive late in the game. Looks solid, and at the very least could be a 3rd down back, and a damn fine one at that! Probably 3rd or later to be honest, not sure if it will convert to the NFL, Dunn was explosive which helped him in the NFL IMO.

I honestly think he could be the next marion barber...or lawrence maroney...a late first day pick, that brings nothing but results. But like i had said earlier, he reminds me of dunn only not AS explosive, but he does have some juice to hit a hole quickly and since he's a smaller back height wise, he's harder to see. I would like to see him in a bucs uniform...Just from watching the game tonight, he picked up the blitz nicely. He can catch the ball out of the backfield, and he doesn't turn it over. Tough inside runner. He has the skillset to bounce it outside and take it to the house.
