There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for red-shirt senior running back Jamaal Williams, Brigham Young Cougars .

RB-Jamaal Williams BYU 6’ 212 lbs.

This young man has competed nationally in track and field events since the age of ten when he first broke his ankle. Williams also has great genetics as his mother Nicolle Thompson was a former NCAA Track & Field championship level sprinter while at UCLA.

Most of these game videos are available via draftbreakdown.com. These are my thoughts: Read More »

With the NFL Combine draft starting today, it seemed a good time to feature one of this classes best rookie runners, Utah’s Devontae Booker.  He is a versatile athlete that excels rushing, catching,dbooker and when necessary, throwing the ball (one for one in pass attempts for a 25-yard touchdown).  After reviewing five of his games against Michigan, California, Washington State (2014), UCLA (2014), and Oregon State (2014),  I have a better understanding of what Booker brings to the next level.  Here are my thoughts:
