Williams has a solid first cut and can usually make the first man miss or struggle to make the tackle. For a smaller back, Williams has the balance to brush off would be tacklers and fight through contact. Trayveon is the best pass-protecting back in the draft, he was relied upon to chip on Clelin Ferrell often and his blitz pickups helped this offense a ton. Williams has great hands out of the backfield, including the ability to reel in one handed catches and make a play after. Has okay vision, not terrible but not great.
Williams lacks the top end speed that you like to see from backs of his size. Trayveon’s biggest negative is that he has fumbling issues, which could hurt him from having a larger role in NFL offenses outside of being strictly a passing-downs back. Williams fumbled in all three of his games that I watched.
Games Watched: Clemson, LSU, Auburn
Williams is the prime passing-down back option in this class. Although he lacks top-end speed, he has good enough burst to get him through the hole and rip off the big run. Williams has okay vision so he might never be a great runner in the NFL but he’s good enough where he can still carry the ball and he isn’t a liability because of it.
Best Fits: Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens
