Former Kentucky running back Boom Williams received an invitation to the 2017 NFL Combine, he revealed on Twitter.
The combine invitation is fantastic news for Boom. In a draft class loaded with running back talent, Williams is ranked in the top 25 in only one of five the major draft outlets. To move up teams’ draft boards, Boom needed a platform to prove himself. Kentucky’s Pro Day will be an important opportunity, but there’s no better place to prove your worth than the NFL Combine. If Boom can run an exceptional 40-yard dash and display his agility in the L/cone drill, his stock could soar.
Congrats and good luck, Boom. The BBN will be watching when the combine begins in Indianapolis on February 28.
