Overview:

Williams, who finished his career at Arkansas, after playing his first 3 seasons at South Carolina, played in 42 career games, had 304 rushes, for 1450 rushing yards, 13 rushing touchdowns, along with 37 receptions, for 435 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he has good speed, he has good vision, and is a tough runner. He finds the holes and attacks them, and is a good pass catching back. He is a very physical, and powerful back. He breaks tackles, makes defenders miss, and is tough to bring down. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He put up good rushing yard numbers, and got into the endzone quite a bit. He is a good blocking back, he fights for every yard, and extra yards, and he can makes something out of nothing when needed. He was also an offensive play maker, and a dynamic play maker. On the other hand, he tends to get stuffed at times, he only had 6 career starts out of 42 games played, he has issues with fast defenders betting by him while pass blocking, and while he has good speed, he does not have elite running back speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Williams as a potential day 3 pick.
