Pos: 
Versatile ball carrier who excels as a pass catcher out of the backfield. Quick-footed, improvises when plays break down and possesses the agility to bounce outside the tackle box. Makes defenders miss in a small area, keeps the play in bounds and works to pick up positive yardage. Helps the quarterback sell ball fakes. Terrific pass catcher who shows the ability to adjust to the errant throw and consistently makes the reception with his hands. Quickly gets out into the flat and works to become an available target.
Neg: 
Does not show great awareness as a blocker. One-speed ball carrier who cannot beat defenders into the open field.
Analysis: 
Williams is a solid skill player who is effective as both a ball carrier and a pass catcher. He offers possibilities as a situational runner or third-down back at the next level.
