2021 Draft Prospect: Pooka Williams - RB - Kansas

Kansas Pro Day 03.05

Pooka Williams - RB

Pooka Williams Jr. – RB – JR – 5’10 170 lb. - #1 > My Projected RB10 Round 4

A smaller running back who throughout his young career has piled up the accolades! In 2017 we saw the passing of the torch from NFL running back Leonard Fournette to Pooka Williams with the Louisiana Mr. Football Award. 2018 saw Williams receive the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year Award. 2019 was the back to back First-team All-Big 12 Award. Although Kansas did not have much success as far as record while Williams was there, the three down back continued to prove his competitiveness and pride every game. If it wasn’t for his size, we could be looking at an early round draft pick. (Darren Sproles fans please forgive me) Williams was a player I have watched more tape on then any other because I want to prove myself wrong. His side to side agility is great, hard to tackle in the open field, and vision alone are things I can’t overlook. Once I dug deeper into the film study, like I do for every player, I noticed even more attributes that I graded above average; hands and patience. Then comes the opportunities; Contact Balance, Break Tackle, Pass Protection, etc. An offensive minded coach would have a field day with these types of skills. Player Comp: Tarik Cohen
