Round 3 – RB Andre Williams, Boston College 

Andre Williams is a bruiser out of Boston College who seeks contact.  His downhill running style is somewhat similar to that of a young Michael Turner, and should translate nicely to a Falcons team wanting to become more physical.  Measuring in at 6-0 and 227 lbs, he has the ability to bounce off of defenders, and frequently send them to the ground.  At Boston College, Williams was a Heisman candidate who ran for 2,177 yards in his senior year.  Taking him here will not only fill the spot left by cutting Snelling, but also give the Falcons an every down back for the future.
