Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Jitterbug athlete with loose hips, rubber ankles and natural fluidity. Quick-footed with the plant-and-go burst to dart through the line of scrimmage and get north-south. Sudden shiftiness to pull a rabbit out of his hat, showing nifty moves that can be tough to contain, especially in space. Eats up grass quickly with very good speed for the position, mixing his gears well.

Small hands, but usually reliable catching the ball out of the backfield. Reliable on short-yardage plays - 10.4 average (16/167/1) in his career on third down and less than two yards. Experienced kick returner with a career 24.1 average (70/1,684/0) - also played on other special teams coverages. Only 242 career offensive touches with no major injuries, limiting the wear and tear on his body. Excellent yards per carry average (6.6) over his career. Well-liked by everyone in College Station.

WEAKNESSES: Undersized with a frame that appears close to maxed out - narrow torso with lean muscle. Lacks the build to run with functional power and won't consistently break tackles after initial contact. Won't generate a push between the tackles and needs space to be effective. Vision is lukewarm and doesn't always trust what he sees or show faith in his blockers to create space.

Was never the bell-cow option in college with only one 100-yard rushing performance in 36 career games and one start - has only five games on his resume with double-digit carries. Didn't return an punts at Texas A&M. Small hands and wasn't asked to run many routes or be a large part of the passing game - unreliable in pass protection with limited upside in this area.

Player Overview

An all-purpose weapon, Williams was underutilized in college as part of a committee backfield the past three seasons at Texas A&M, leaving College Station averaging 6.6 yards per carry over his career.

He boasts controlled twitch to make explosive jump cuts, effortlessly shifting his balance to make defenders miss, even in tight spaces. But his lack of size, power and offensive identity are concerns and project him as more of a luxury weapon for an offense, who can impact the game as a return man and change of pace option out of the backfield/slot - mid-to-late round option due to questions about his NFL role.
