Boston College running back and Heisman trophy finalist Andre Williams is the definition of a power back. He said the Bills were one of a handful of teams he’ll be interviewing with here at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
“I’ve got it written down,” said Williams when a reporter asked who he’s meeting with for interviews. “Bills, Ravens, Jaguars and Bengals.”
Williams, who ran for over 2,100 of his 3,700-plus career rushing yards in his senior season, has been compared to Earl Campbell as a runner.
“I would say I’m a downhill runner,” said Williams. “I’m best when my shoulders are square to the line. I make a quick cut I get upfield and I use my shoulders and hands as weapons. I like to punish the defense and punish the DBs and I like to finish in the fourth quarter.”
Williams was plagued by a late season shoulder injury, which was why he pulled out of the Senior Bowl. He said Friday he’s feeling a lot better. A telling sign of his shoulder health is whether or not he participates in the bench press. Williams is projected between the third and fifth rounds.
