Former Kentucky Running Back Boom Williams has been added to the set of players that will workout in the Atlanta Falcons’ “Locals Day” on Wednesday. The workout is for players from the Atlanta Metro Area that are draft eligible in 2017. Williams will be joined by the likes of Isaiah McKenzie and George Catalina of Georgia as well as Dalvin Tomlinson of Alabama
The workout for his hometown team could be another opportunity for Williams to run a 40 and potentially land somewhere as a returner or running back. The smaller number of players in the combine could allow Williams an opportunity to impress scouts this week. Locals Day is not open to the media or the public.
CBS Sports has Williams as their 37th best running back and 478th overall in their newest rankings. Williams could fill in somewhere as a niche back like Darren Sproles in the future. This week’s workout could go a long way into getting him a spot on an NFL roster.
