The Buffalo Bills were confirmed to be the first team to talk to Boston College RB Andre Williams at the NFL Scouting Combine over the weekend. Williams, a projected mid-round pick, could be drafted to play behind CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson to become an option for the future of the running game in Buffalo.

Jenny Vrentas from Sports Illustrated was following Williams throughout the combine in Indianapolis and documented the proceedings that Williams had with the Bills.

Vrentas documented that Williams talked football the entire 15 minutes that he was allowed with the Bills, not taking any tests or answering strenuous personal questions, which may be the case with other NFL franchises. 

There were a total of eight coaches and staff members in the room with Williams during his interview. Among them were GM Doug Whaley and Director of College Scouting Kelvin Fisher.

It is not likely for the Bills to pick a running back in the early rounds, which means that the Doak Walker Award winner (the nation’s best running back) could find himself in Orchard Park after a mid-round selection.

Other teams who interviewed Williams include the Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and New York Giants.
