Steve Balestrieri of Pats Fans, took a look at how former BYU running back Jamaal Williams would fit in with the New England Patriots.
After talking about what the Patriots already have in the way of running backs, Balestrieri wrote, "When healthy (he’s had injury issues), he runs quick to the hole and with solid instincts and vision to see where the play will develop. He is not a dancer at the line, he’ll lower his head, runs with a low pad level and gets good yardage after contact."
After looking at Williams' production for the Cougars in 2016, breaking down his pros and cons and how he would fit with the Patriots , Balestrieri continued, "His vision and lack of dancing at the line will be a boost to the Patriots short-yardage and goal line packages. He’s been used in a rotation at BYU and doing so with the Pats won’t be an issue at all for him. The Patriots are a pass first team especially with the backs in the system already but Williams will definitely have a chance to carve out a nice role for himself."
