Clearly much quicker than Williams? Where did you get that idea?
William Powell Pro Day:
40 Yrd Dash: 4.63
20 Yrd Dash: 2.64
10 Yrd Dash: 1.60
Ryan Williams Pro Day:
40 Yrd Dash: 4.49
20 Yrd Dash: 2.50
10 Yrd Dash: 1.59
I would compare their cone drill and shuttle stats, but that would be impossible since William Powell pulled his hamstring running the 40 at his pro day.
Responding to the bolded part. Is it entirely possible this guy is just an injury disaster. I mean he hurts hammy running on pro day, he gets a concussion on like his 6th NFL touch. Maybe the guy is just made out of glass.
Yet another reason that the extremely limited history we have for this guy makes things hard to evaluate.
Considering he had 23 career carries in college, and was a walk-on at K-State, missed an entire year there due to an "unspecified leg injury", his hamstring pull at his pro-day, and a concussion. I think it is safe to say that it is HIGHLY questionable that he can handle an NFL workload outside of a RBBC or as being a change of pace option on passing downs. I have said it many times in this thread, based on what we know I cannot possibly imagine William Powell being fantasy relevant at any time this year, or ever for that matter. Alphonso Smith is the better add in my opinion.
finally a post that makes sense in this 35 page fiasco. even a guy with talent like beanie wells, when healthy is hard to start behind this line. this whole thread demonstrates the lack of rb1's and rb2's, this season people are grasping at straws more than ever.
