 Avery Williams, Boise State, Player News

  Former Boise State cornerback Avery Williams could be destined for a position change in the NFL. Williams was one of three Broncos who took full part in the school's pro day Wednesday in Boise State's indoor facility, and he showed what he can do in drills specific to defensive backs, running backs and slot receivers. The two-time Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year, who made highlight reels with his kickoff and punt returns, said several NFL teams have mentioned to him the possibility of becoming a third-down running back. He started every game the past two seasons at defensive back, but he's fine with showing what else he can do. "I want to be the most versatile player in this draft," Williams told reporters on Wednesday. "I can do it all and I'm willing to do it all." - Idaho Statesman

  Two-time Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year Avery Williams was honored again Wednesday, winning the Jet Award, which goes to the top return specialist in the country. The award is named after 1972 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers, of Nebraska fame. Williams earned consensus All-American and first-team All-Mountain West honors this year after leading the nation in 2020 with four special teams touchdowns. The native of Pasadena, California, was also named first-team all-conference as a cornerback, kick returner and punt returner. - Idaho Statesman
