NCAA Football: Rice at Baylor Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

While Baylor battles concerns about depth on the offensive and defensive lines, it has one of the best running back groups in the country. Entering his sophomore season, Terence Williams is in an excellent position to have a break-out season like Johnny Jefferson did last year. Williams figures to then become the second option as a junior, then featured back his senior year.

Williams is an explosive player. Against Rice, Williams doesn’t need much of a window to reach the end zone:

Williams breaks tackles so well, that even if Shock Linwood and Johnny Jefferson are too dominant to take off the field much, Williams will get plenty of opportunity near the goal line:

Terence Williams is in a tough spot behind Shock Linwood and Johnny Jefferson. But sometimes you show enough they find a way to play you. Williams somehow ran for 588 yards last season beyond those two. With another year of development, Williams should give Big 12 defenses a glimpse that the Baylor running back group isn’t close to being done.
