LSU running back Darrel Williams is down in Mobile, AL this week preparing for Saturday's Senior Bowl game and told reporters he is eager to prove he's 'not just a backup back' and could be a starter on any team. Per The Advocate:
quote:

“I want to show everybody that I’m not just a backup back,” Williams said. “I can be a starter anywhere on any team. All I need is the opportunity to show everybody. Everybody’s going to see some of my skills that they didn’t see at LSU.”
The 5-11, 229-pound NFL prospect from Marrero, La. (John Ehret HS) rushed for 1651 yard on 321 carries with 19 total touchdowns during his four-year career at LSU.

I can see him carving out a nice career for himself in the NFL. Wish him the best whether it be football or anything else. He was a solid player and an awesome tiger.

First of all RB Darrel Williams has skills he's an every down back runs between the tackles, excellent receiver and pick up blitzes. All of that makes him a day one starter but the most impressive attribute Williams has is his loyalty in a day when a player gets a whiff of competition he transfer look no further than our own team. Darrel Williams could've transfer and nobody would've held it against him but he didn't that's what an NFL team is getting a player who relishes competition and puts in the work. So good luck big fella and just grind and you will be rewarded. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!4EVA TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!

Dude was a solid, every down back. Not "exceptional" in space, but a serviceable receiver out of the backfield, excellent run and pass blocking back, solid downfield runner. Now, he is generally a 1-cut back, but with modern defenses, that isn't necessarily a derogatory label - he's patient with his blockers, makes his move and gets what he can get. Teams could do a lot worse.

He embodies the Tiger spirit. I like him at the next level, he'll do well for himself.

He deserves so much credit. He came in the same class as Fournette. With Guice in the following class. He could have transferred to plenty of schools who would have loved him as their starter. Instead, he paid his dues, worked his butt off, and gave all he had for this team. Any organization would be lucky to have him in the locker room

It wouldn't surprise me at all if he ends up being a starting rb in the NFL one day. His situation at LSU had to be the most unfortunate out of any other player's in the nation. Lol, he played behind fournette and guice his entire time here (2 of the best rbs in the nation) and still had the talent to get on the field for us. Williams is a good rb with alot of skills and potential. I dont know what round he will go in or who will draft him, but they're going to get a legitimate rb that will contribute to the team from day 1, and most importantly a team player that will do whatever is asked of him. You just gotta love you some darrell williams. Geaux tigers!

The NFL is trending towards having a RB like Williams that can do most of the dirty work while also having a more versatile RB that can line up in the slot at times. I definitely think there's a home for Williams in the NFL.

"I'm not just a backup back." No, you're not! Best of luck, Tiger!

This guy would have started for 98% of the teams out there. Not his fault he ended up with Guice and Fournette. I have huge respect for him choosing to play for LSU and Louisiana. Cheering for him big time. He took advantage of what time he was given, was a big piece on offense.

I have so much respect for this guy. Based on interviews I've seen, he seems to be humble. I hope he has a long and prosperous NFL career.

He's definitely not. He just happened to play alongside two of the best we've ever had.
