Overview

Williams has been a backup running back for his whole career at LSU and never managed to gain more than 500 yards in a single season.  He shows better physical traits for the running back position than his teammate, Charles Scott, but does not get nearly as many touches.  His speed, quickness, agility and elusiveness translate to more success at the NFL level but will be a bit of a gamble in that he has yet to show it on a consistent basis.  Williams will need a lot of work on route running and blocking techniques but he does have good tools to work with.

Analysis

Strengths

Williams is a nice combination of size and speed for the running back position.  Has good elusiveness for a big back, can make defenders miss and get to the perimeter.  Is a guy who will finish off his runs and fight for extra yardage.  Is a high- effort player.  Exhibits the necessary burst through the hole.

Weaknesses

Williams has limited exposure and never carried the load in college.  Never had a highly-productive season.  At this time, we question his route running skills and overall comfort in the passing game.  Can be caught dancing too much at times resulting in negative plays.
