The Buffalo Bills added another running back to their loaded backfield.

In the fifth round of the 2016 NFL draft, the Buffalo Bills addressed one of their deepest positions and added another running back to their roster. Arkansas Razorbacks RB Jonathan Williams was selected by Buffalo with pick 156.

Williams is 6'0" and 223 pounds. The running back missed the 2015 season at Arkansas, but he put up outstanding numbers during his time with the Razorbacks. In his three seasons at Arkansas, Williams rushed for 2,321 yards on 406 attempts (5.7 YPC).and added 16 rushing touchdowns. The back also 345 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns with Arkansas.

According to, Williams was responsible for 44 missed tackles during his 2014 campaign. The site describes Williams as a three-down back with terrific hands. It seems as though Williams dropped simply due to suffering an injury in 2015.

In Buffalo, Williams joins LeSean McCoy, Karlos Williams, Mike Gillislee, and James Wilder Jr. at the running back position. In a run-first offense, you can't have enough talent and Williams may be a steal for the Bills in the fifth round of the draft.
