BIOGRAPHY: "Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his freshman campaign and named as an All-American last season. Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year in ?08 after posting 207/1,037/15 on the ground, averaging 5-yards per carry. Also added 19/245/1 catching the ball. Junior totals included 195/1,187/12 as a ball carrier, after a career best 1,233 yards during his sophomore campaign."

POSITIVES: "Strong, interior ball-carrier who pounds it out between the tackles. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and follows them everywhere on the field. Displays good footwork in a small area, works to set up defenders, and flashes quickness through the hole. Runs with an aggressive style, putting his shoulders into defenders, and doles out punishment. Reliable pass catcher who shows terrific vision whenever the ball is in his hands. Drives up the field on contact, and falls forward when tackled to pick up the extra yardage."

NEGATIVES: Not an elusive ball carrier who creates his own yardage. Lacks the necessary speed to turn the corner.

ANALYSIS: "Williams was ultra-productive in college, and his versatility as a pass catcher and running back could help him catch on as a situational/third-down specialist in the NFL."

PROJECTION: Free Agent
