Pos: 
Former starting running back who saw his role reduced last season. Strong, keeps his feet moving and breaks tackles. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and displays terrific running vision and an overall sense for what's happening on the field. Effective pass catcher out of the backfield. Stays with blocking assignments and works to finish off opponents. Helps the quarterback sell ball fakes.
Neg: 
Loses a lot of momentum changing direction. Not a creative runner or a quick cutback ball carrier.
Analysis: 
Williams was graded as a priority free agent entering the season, but he saw his role reduced at Mississippi State and watched his draft grade drop. He's a potential situational back who is moderately effective in all facets of the game.
