Are you kidding me? There must be other lights because he looks nowhere near 4.4 let alone 4.3. I'm not seeing the amazing strength like you guys talk either. and he's 5'8 and sounds like more of a Pittsburgh back than an LSU back.
You have your speed RB/WR and COP (change of pace) back in Brazil(going into 2014), your all around meat grinder in Fournette and either the next best back on the board Racean Thomas, or a better version of Palelei in Kevin Shorter. I'd take Williams as consolation if we don't get Racean or Shorter but taking Palelei would do nothing for us. I just don't see the greatness like the others do.
yeah my thought process has been 2 all along with Brossette and Guice basically ours for the the losing in 2015. If Racean goes to Auburn then you offer Williams because UGA won't take him if they get Chubb or may switch him to LB.

I see a little Ware in him. He's a 5 tool rb. He can catch, run through the tackles, run around the end, block and create in space. Would also add an extra wrinkle like Ray Rice when he is in the slot.
He's not 5'8, he's 5'10 and 200lbs. Go to the National Underclassman Combine site, They timed him. You don't get invited to the Under Armor 5star Combine for nothing. I've coached a handful of kids that made it to the NFL and he's as good as they were coming out of HS. Power? Last summer he did 36 reps at 155. Speed? 4:38 40. Good thing you're not a talent evaluator, you'd starve, Dat.
yes these highlights say nothing which is why I asked where are yall seeing the greatness. No I'm not a talent evaluater or former coach I was basically hinting for someone to provide me more info than this highlight tape does because I'm lazy and you guys obviously have more invested in this than me. I've watched it numerous times and he just didn't jump out as "offer this kid right now"
I understand. Sorry for sounding like a jerk. His With LSU's stature, there is NO kid, at any position that's a MUST have, including, LF, unless they're going to a division opponent. I think Palelei would be a killer on special teams from day one and fit into the RB rotation, giving you 7-10 plays from that position per game with a different look.
