Trayveon Williams

Trayveon Williams is one of the most electrifying players in the SEC, but he never really got much recognition in his first two years for two reasons. One, he was splitting time with Keith Ford. Secondly, he was in an offense that did not utilize the running back position, at least not in a traditional sense.

When you think of running backs dominating the game, most of them come from offenses that were suited to take advantage of their strengths. Kevin Sumlin ran a spread offense and their runs often came out of the shotgun formation. This will not be the case with Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher will focus on getting the ball north and south and it will start with the run game. He will use a fullback. He will have a tight end on the line. The offensive line will be required to be physical and move guys off the ball and will double team opposing lineman to open holes for the backs. Williams has excellent vision, shiftiness and speed. He fits the mold of several previous Fisher running backs who have gone on to the NFL.

Williams has 2,138 yards from scrimmage and 16 total touchdowns over his first two seasons. If A&M’s offensive line figures things out, he could approach those totals in one season with Jimbo.
