When the Giants drafted RB Andre Williams in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, they felt they were getting a highly productive player that could push the pile and make the tough yards on third down.
"Andre Williams, running back, Boston College - well-known, big back, a lot of production, power runner, can bang inside and has the speed to take it for big runs if he breaks into the secondary. A very good value for us, gives us some more depth at our running back position, creates a lot of competition. We think he's going to be there but we couldn't pass up the value of a running back like this, of this caliber, at this point in the draft." - GM Jerry Reese, May 10, 2014.
