Overview:

Williams was highly productive at Kentucky, where he had 367 carries, for 2513 rushing yards, 18 rushing touchdowns, along with 38 catches, for 292 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He has great speed, he has good vision, he is a play maker on offense, he is a good blocking back, and he is a good pass catching back. He is also very tough to take down, and he makes defenders miss with ease. He is a smaller back, and he does get stuffed at times. With that said, I view Williams as a day 3 pick, likely in the mid round range when it is all said and done.
