So, Kiper/McShay has them all 3 of them gone by pick 35 in the draft. I think UNC's Williams will be there by the Dolphins pick 36. I really think the Dolphins will mix it up with an offensive and a defensive player in the first round, and I think they'll try to get Williams in the 2nd round. BUT, what do I know as I'm not a fly in the Dolphins war room. I'm just trying to get into Grier and Flores' head about team balance.

▪ Here’s how Pro Football Focus sized up the top backs:
Williams (ranked 53rd among all prospects) “has rare contact balance. His 76 broken tackles on 157 carries this past season produced easily the highest broken tackle rate we’ve recorded for a single season. Not even 21 years old, Williams is still an ascending player.”
Harris (ranked 65th among all prospects) “had an incredibly productive Alabama career with rushing grades of 91.8, 89.8 and 90.1 the past three seasons. He also established himself as one of the best receiving backs in the country, with only three career drops on 83 catchable targets.”
Etienne (ranked 66th among all prospects) “with 4.4 speed, is one of the best home run threats at the position in recent college football history. He racked up 85 runs of 15-plus yards in his Clemson career. He also reinvented himself in the passing game as his career went on and led all backs in the country with 588 receiving yards in 2020.”
