Williams then followed that up by jumping a 37 inch vertical, which would have been enough to rank him second among all defensive lineman and fourth among all linebackers at the NFL Combine this year.
Uconn running back Max DeLorenzo can quite simply be described as a jack of all trades. NFL Scouts have been very impressed with the versatility of the former Husky. As a 5'11" and 216 pound running back, Max has the build of an NFL back. His vast array of skills would make an asset to any team in the league.
