Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAMAAL WILLIAMS: BYU, 6000 211 4.58. Four-year starter from Fontana, CA. The all-time leading rusher in BYU history. Played in a West Coast style pro offense. Plays big and fast with some slash. Can jump cut into the hole. Good vision and running skill. Runs with his pads over his toes. Doesn’t give the tackler much surface to hit. Always going forward. Better than average hands. Caught 60 passes for 567 yards in his career. As an inside runner he can pick, slide, and burst. Powerful enough to drag tacklers. Not easy to tackle. Can break tackles in short yardage and goal-line. Follows and utilizes the tackle as a lead blocker. Gains yards after initial hit. Finishes his runs. Will need to improve as a pass protector. Has had some knee and ankle issues and surgeries over the past four years. A versatile back who could play in any system. 2016 stats: 1375 yds, 5.9 ypc, 12 TD, 7 rec, 80 yds, 11.4 ypr, 0 TD. OSR:23/ 30. Fourth/fifth round. (A-30 1/2, H-9 5/8, BP-DNP, SS-4.54).
