0 comment

Our new massive series here at Downtown Rams will give you players that catch our eye. We will bring you bring you draft prospects, see where their fit is with the Rams and of course give you a player comparison.

Who is the 6-foot-0, 212 pound RB Jamaal Williams? 

A strong and powerful running back who one nearly rushed for 300 yards and five rushing touchdowns performance against Toledo. He is also the son of former UCLA sprinter Nicolle Thompson-Williams.



Good speed, as a pedigree of a sprinter as such as himself.

Tremendous acceleration which gives ability to run by tacklers

Good lateral agility

Amazing balance even after being tackled or knocked off stride.

Powerful runner for a back of his size.

Keeps his legs driving and ability to spins out of tackles

Great stiff arm to prevent tacklers

Fights for extra yards always falling forward.

Good short yardage back

Secures the ball, fumbles once every 140 carries.

Pass catching experiences




Bulls through running lanes crashing into blockers rather than shifting with the contours. 

Needs to develop a jump cut from one gap to the other 

Inability to create own space or run lanes

Lacks home run speed

Needs to work on technique for pass protection 

Tendency of lunging at rushers whiffing on blocks

Needs to run north-south more consistently

Has been deceptive with injury concerns



How does he fit with the Rams?

With his north to south running style, Williams could become a workhorse in short yardage and red zone offensive units. Durability with securing the ball, and electrifying combination of strength, elusiveness and vision, could be just with the Rams can use on offense to spare Todd Gurley.
