Jarveon Williams

Williams might be the least known of any of these Bengals running backs. Williams has hung around this team much like Carson has. A UDFA out of Texas-San Antonio, he signed with the Bengals in the 2017 season, but only made the practice squad. He’ll get a second crack to make the team this season.

Williams has a nicely rounded skill set, but the problem for him is that the Bengals drafted over him. Williams and Walton have very similar builds and skill sets, and Walton obviously has the draft pedigree edge over Williams. Williams didn’t do too much in the game against Chicago either, although he did rip off a 29 yard reception. Unfortunately, Williams has long odds to make the final roster as he has to beat out Walton to secure that role.
