Running back – Trayveon Williams

Williams is almost a lock to make the All-SEC team if he gets even remotely average blocking in front of him. The offensive line struggled a year ago, but some stiffer competition thanks to good recruiting over the last couple of years and more experience with Jim Turner should see the offensive line improve in 2018.

A running back is only as good as his offensive line allows him to be. The excellent backs can make something out of nothing on occasion, but even the best need holes to run through consistently. Williams did not have this a year ago, especially against stiff competition. That should change with Fisher’s offense and the Aggies returning basically everyone on the offensive line.

Plus, Williams will benefit from Fisher’s style of offense. He leans heavily on the run game and will likely give Williams, by far the best and most experienced running back on the roster, his fair share of touches. It’s due to this that Williams should be considered a dark horse, or even just a regular favorite to win the Heisman.
