Andre Williams.  At 227 lbs, Williams is one the bigger running backs coming this year, and notably, he is both taller and heavier than any Bengals running back currently on the roster.  While the Law Firm is not declining, I’m not sold that Rex Burkhead is going to be anything more than the second coming of Brian Leonard.

With a 4.60 40-yard dash, bulking this kid up might not only make for a good apprentice for BJGE, but also a descent RB/FB combo.  Here’s the hitch that will keep Williams as a 3rd or 4th rounder: while he has amassed almost 3,700 yards on the ground during his career at Boston College with more than 2,100 coming this season, Williams has only 10 receptions in 4 years in college with none registered this season.
