There was one player in college football in 2013 that rushed for over 2,000 yards and that was Boston College’s Andre Williams. Oddly enough though, you haven’t heard his name brought up too much as the NFL Draft next month rapidly approaches.
But according to a report from the Baltimore Sun, that doesn’t necessarily mean that teams aren’t interested in potentially acquiring his services, especially teams in the AFC as they’re reporting the Browns, Patriots, Steelers and Jets are looking at the Heisman finalist.
Boston College running back Andre Williams has drawn the most interest from the New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets, according to league sources.
Williams won the Doak Walker Award last season given to the nation’s top running back, which was more or less a no-brainer. He finished the season with 2,177 yards and 18 touchdowns, earning him All-American honors as well as that trip to New York.
All of the teams mentioned above could certainly use the young help at the running back position, and Williams could be a viable option in the third or fourth round.
