Biography: Former all-Conference performer relegated to just five starts last season because of hamstring issues. Sophomore totals included 110/447/9 on the ground with 10/109/1 as a receiver. Posted 293/1655/21 on the ground and 16/180/1 receiving as a redshirt freshman.
Positives: "Explosive ball carrier with the ability to create his own yardage. Runs with good lean, displays terrific agility and the ability to turn the corner. Shows vision and instincts and has a burst through the hole. Finds cutback lanes, bounces around defenders, and effectively sets up blocks everywhere on the field. Sidesteps opponents to keep runs alive and shows a degree of patience in his running. Runs with good lean and squeezes through small openings of the defense. Terrific receiver out of the backfield."
Negatives: Lacks pure breakaway speed. Has struggled with ball security at times during his career. Not a strong back that breaks tackles or picks up yardage off initial contact.
Analysis: "After a sensational freshman campaign, Williams struggled through the 2010 season with injury issues. He possesses a lot of skill for the next level, but does not project as a feature runner in the NFL. If he's able to stay healthy and get his game back on track, Williams is best as a rotational runner who can see spot duty with the first team."
