PROVO — BYU’s best NFL draft prospect midway through the 2019 football season appeared to be running back Ty’Son Williams, before his season came to a tough early ending.

Through four games played, the 6-foot, 220 pound South Carolina transfer showed a lot of promise, reminding some observers of current Green Bay Packer and former BYU running back Jamaal Williams.

Williams’ season was derailed, however, after he suffered an ACL tear when taking on Washington, leaving his NFL prospects in serious doubt.

But Williams is making the most of it, and recently posted a video of his pro-day workout numbers on twitter, just six months after sustaining the injury.

The numbers cited would have placed him relatively high across several NFL combine results, although individual workout stats cited often prove better than combine stats.

His 4.48 40-yard dash time would place him alongside Georgia’s D’Andre Swift in a tie for sixth-fastest time among running backs, with his 24 reps of the 225-pound bar placing him in a tie for third among all combine performers.

His best time may very well be in the three-cone drill, where his reported 6.81 seconds would have held as the fastest-time recorded.

The NFL draft will be held from April 23-25 with Williams’ chances of being selected currently slim, according to most services, despite the impressive numbers cited in his individual workouts.
