Odell Beckham Jr. makes the highlight-reel catches, but he isn’t the only New York Giants rookie with a superb set of hands. Beckham is the master of the one-handed grab, but when it comes to juggling, RB Andre Williams is the master of sleight of hand.
In fact, Williams’ juggling act set up a game-breaking 50-yard touchdown run against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
On the Giants’ first possession of the second half, Williams juggled the ball on a toss sweep play before corralling it and busting loose down the left sideline for the touchdown. The juggling act may have disrupted the timing of the Titans defense, but it was the vision and finishing speed of Williams that set him free for the score.
“All I saw was green grass and empty space to run,” Williams said after the game.
The fourth-round pick from Boston College may be built like a power back, but his ability to shift into extra gear comes from exercises such as his remarkable 53-inch Plyo Hop Drill.
To perform the drill, Williams pushes through the ground to jump onto a 53-inch stack of truck tires. This plyo drill trains him to generate force through the ground to accelerate forward, power through arm tackles, and outrace defenders.
Williams is no magician, but his juggling skills combined with the ability to elevate 4-½ feet off the ground made this magical play possible for Andre the Giant, who is the STACK NFL Beast of the Week.
