Big, fast, physical player who can cover ground and is a hard hitter on the defensive side while also using his speed and vision as a kick returner and kickoff coverage guy on special teams. Showed his versatility coming in in FSU's "6-pack" package late in the season as well starting at linebacker in the ACC Championship Game. Should see even more increased playing time in 2013.
11/04/2013 - 2014 NFL Draft: Seminoles may have nation's best running backs...As such, the running back who could earn the most buzz after Saturday night's dominating effort could be 6-foot-1, 223-pound junior Karlos Williams, who began the season at strong safety. Williams only ran the ball five times against Miami but he certainly demonstrated the exciting traits to make it clear what the FSU coaches saw to prompt the position switch. Belying his lack of experience, Williams showed natural running skills, accelerating quickly, cutting decisively and running with determination and good forward lean to rack up 46 yards. During the glory days of the Bobby Bowden era, the Seminoles often boasted a stable of future NFL backs. Few groups were any better than the trio Jimbo Fisher and Winston get to rely upon this season. Whether after this year or next, expect each of these Seminoles' backs to earn a selection in the NFL draft, making Florida State's trio arguably the elite stable of running backs in college football. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
