As expected, the
Williams is trying to carve out a niche in a backfield that includes Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Peyton Hillis.
He'll vie for carries with starter Rashad Jennings and newly cleared David Wilson.
However, that was before they drafted
Williams could also develop as a rushing downs type of back though he'll have to make strides in training camp first.
With the 113th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the
Williams is a tough physical back that had some issues in receiving drills at the combine, which is why his draft stock took a hit. However, he rushed for 2,177 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2013, averaging 6.1 yards per carry. He also broke out for a 339-yard, two-touchdown performance on the ground against N.C. State.
