Morning links: Breaking down film of Jamaal Williams; Jazz win total projected

Dan Dahlke of Lombardi Ave. broke down the film of former BYU running back Jamaal Williams.

After talking about the running back situation for the Packers heading into the season, Dahlke wrote, “It’s not unreasonable to think much will be expected from Williams in particular. As the Packers late fourth-round pick, he was the first halfback Green Bay selected in the draft.”

After talking about Williams’ production at BYU, Dahlke wrote, “Williams is a tough, one-cut runner who has a lot to offer the Packers’ offense. However, his game is so much more than impressive collegiate statistics.”

Dahlke then used film to look at four key traits about Williams, including running through contactbackfield visionquick acceleration and home-run ability.

Speaking of his big play ability, Dahlke wrote, “Watch any of Williams’ film and it’s apparent he makes big play after big play. He’s demoralizing for a defense. He can run them over or slip out of a tight spot.”
