Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Possesses speed, cutback ability and power, and demonstrated improved vision over the course of his lone season at tailback. Williams has light feet and flexible ankles to make strong cuts and redirect his momentum quickly.

While decisive and smooth, he also runs with forward lean and a physical style that makes him a tough guy to slow down once he gains steam.

WEAKNESSES: Being a safety-to-back convert, Williams? instincts and feel need time to develop as he clearly looks more comfortable on the outside rather than between the tackles, where he doesn't show the same game-breaking ability. Allows holes to close because of his hesitancy and choppy footwork at the line of scrimmage, displaying questionable instincts.

Above all, he needs to do a better job running behind his pads to maximize balance. He runs too upright and struggles to break tackles necessary as an effective inside runner.

He also needs to show improvement as a blocker and pass-catcher in 2014, two areas where he appeared lackadaisical last season.

Williams has the natural burst, agility and hungry streak that makes him appealing to NFL scouts and could land him in the draft?s top-50. Has the talent to be an elite running back at the next level if he can continue to improve.

--Dane Brugler/Derek Stephens (9/1/14)

08/08/2014 - 2014 PRESEASON ALL-ACC TEAM (MEDIA): RB Karlos Williams, Florida State (37) 6-1 219 Senior Davenport, Fla.,...Will play primarily tailback for the first full season of his career after coming to FSU as a highly-touted safety. Expected to begin season at the top of the depth chart in FSU's running back rotation after scoring 11 touchdowns and averaging 8.0 ypc on the ground following the position switch heading into the second game of 2013. Tall, powerful runner with world-class speed and instincts. Tough enough to gain yards between the tackles and fastest enough to burst around the edge. - Florida State football
