Williams, who finished his career at LSU, played in 48 career games, had 321 rushes, for 1651 rushing yards, with 19 rushing touchdowns, along with 38 receptions, for 462 receiving yards. He has good size, he has good speed, he has good vision, and is a tough runner. He finds holes, and attacks them. He breaks tackles, makes defenders miss, and is tough to bring down. He fights for every yard, and extra yards. He is a very physical, and powerful back. He put up good rushing yard numbers, and is a scoring machine. He is a good pass catching back, an offensive play maker, and a dynamic play maker. He can make something out of nothing when needed, and is a good blocking back. He also had good instincts, and is a tough nosed player. On the other hand, he tends to get stuffed at times, he only has 6 career starts out of 48 games played, mainly due to him playing behind both Leonard Fournette, and Derrius Guice, and while he has good speed, he does not have elite running back speed, but that doers not hurt his game. With that said, I view Williams as a potential day 3 pick.
