Packers rookie RB ready for work: ‘Contact is my favorite part’

The Green Bay Packers’ fourth-round draft pick Jamaal Williams (BYU) is looking forward to a run-centric offense during training camp, and he’s ready to give his best to stand out from the pack.

“I can’t wait for it,” Willaims said at the close of minicamp. “I’ve been waiting to run the ball for a while and just show the tenaciousness. I can’t wait for contact. Contact is my favorite part.”

He’ll need that drive as he competes with a a slew of RBs vying for relevance – Fifth-round pick Aaron Jones (UTEP), seventh-rounder Devante Mays (Utah St.), and undrafted signees Kalif Phillips (Charlotte) and William Stanback (Virginia Union) are all in the competition.

“You just have to keep working at it, watching it, looking at your playbook,” Williams said. “That’s something you can never get tired of doing, watching film. I’m glad I don’t have school anymore, so I can be 24-7 watching film and playing football.”
