Pos: 
Hard-nosed ball carrier who runs best downhill. Effectively uses blocks, keeps his feet moving and breaks the first tackle to pick up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Gets a lot of momentum going up the field and displays terrific short-area quickness and burst. Very effective as a short-yardage blocker. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield
Neg: 
Ineffective when he runs east/west. Lacks the agility necessary to turn the perimeter. Loses a lot of speed and momentum when he changes direction.
Analysis: 
Williams comes off a terrific season but has limitations. He's a short-yardage ball carrier who can also be used as a pass catcher out of the backfield, but he may be nothing more than a fourth back on a roster.
