Overview:

Williams was highly productive at BYU, where he had 726 carries, proving to be a workhorse for them, with 3901 rushing yards, an impressive 35 rushing touchdowns, along with 60 receptions, for 567 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. He has good size, good speed, good vision, and is a good pass catching back. He also is a good pass blocking back, is an explosive playmaker, and makes defenders miss with ease. The only issue is he gets stuffed at times. With that said, due to his skills, production, and demand for running backs, I view Williams as a day 3 pick, likely in the mid round range when it is all said and done.
