Cadillac Runs Away With NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year Award

Former Tiger Cadillac Williams ran away with the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award on Wednesday. Williams received 47 of 50 first place votes in the balloting. Ronnie Brown collected one first place vote.

"W really felt that he was a great, great running back, to be honest with you,"said Bucs Coach John Gruden. "Tommy Tuberville felt the same way. Everybody I talked to in Alabama said: This is the greatest running back in the history of high school football in Alabama.

"Better than Bo Jackson, better than most of these guys have ever seen. I'm not saying he's better than Bo. But everybody I talked to said he's a hell of a back. Get him on your team, somehow, some way," said Gruden.

Williams rushed for more than 1100 yards and had six 100 yard games.
