Analysis

Strengths

Thickly built. Tough and aggressive. Runs hard downhill. Exceptional timed, straight-line speed. Good core power to out-leverage defenders and move linebackers out of the hole. Good balance to kick through arm tackles and stay on his feet after chucking blockers in kickoff coverage. Accomplished special teams cover man. Effective cut blocker. Dependable catcher. Exceptional weight-room work ethic and passion for the game. Unselfish, team player.

Weaknesses

Was never a full-time starter in a spread offense that did not make heavy use of the fullback position. Limited career production. Is not elusive and cannot make defenders miss. Tends to let the ball into his body.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Tough, dedicated, mature, self-made overachiever who was not heavily deployed at a position that has become a dying breed, but made an impact when he was on the field and plays with the fearless abandon of a classic wedge-buster. The type of player fans root for, Williams could make a living as a core special-teams contributor who leads by example.
