Jonathan Williams played runninback for the Arkansas Razorbacks from 2012 to 2014. Every year Jonathan’s numbers improved culminating in his junior year in which he had 211 carries for 1190 yards and 12 TDs. After sitting out his entire senior year due to a foot injury, Williams was selected in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He’d play sparingly over the course of his rookie season rushing for 94 yards, and scoring his first touchdown against the New England Patriots. Jonathan was cut in 2017, and quickly found a home with the Broncos on their practice squad. Soon thereafter the New Orleans Saints stepped in, and signed Jonathan to a two year deal off of Denver’s practice squad. Currently, Jonathan is a member of the Indianapolis Colts.
Selected in the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State, Anthony Dixon was quite a surprise for the San Fransisco 49ers. The power back made the roster after the sudden retirement of Glen Coffee, by putting together one of the best preseasons in NFL history, rushing 74 times for 300 yards and 4 TDs.
Dixon pretty much backed up Frank Gore and Brian Westbrook during the season, but still managed to carve out 70 carries for 237 yards and 2 TDs in 2010. He spent the majority of the remainder of his 49er career on special teams, signing with the Bills in 2014.
He had his most productive year with the Bills, rushing 105 times for 432 yards and 2 TDs, including a career long 47 yard jaunt. Boobie also earned Special Teams Player of the Week Honors in Week 12 after he blocked a Jets’ punt. A lingering calf injury cratered his 2015 campaign and he was released in 2016.
After spending the entire season out of football, Anthony signed with the Spring League to showcase his talents to NFL and CFL scouts in 2017. He split time at runningback and fullback and had a 45 yard TD run and was considered one of the league’s standout players. Currently he remains a free agent.

Although injuries slowed down his Senior campaign, Kevon Seymour distinguished himself enough to be recognized by scouts as a reputable defensive back. Outside of his special teams contributions, Seymour had 126 tackles, three interceptions,19 deflections, and one fumble recovery in 24 games. After he was selected in the 6th round of the 2016 draft, he made the roster of the Buffalo Bills, thanks in part to a strong preseason performance. With 3 starts and 15 games under his belt, Seymour had 14 tackles, 8 special teams tackles, and 3 pass deflections his rookie year. Losing out for the nickle back position in camp in 2017, Kevon was among a flurry of last minute trades executed by teams making final cutdowns. He’d be traded straight up by the Bills to the Panthers for Kaelin Clay and a 2019 7th round pick.
