Notable Headlines

Williams was a 3-star recruit, and opted to join Ohio State for college. In his freshman season, he only managed to play in 4 games, but managed to get 64 yards from 10 carries. Build on that in 2021, with 508 yards from 71 carries with 3 TDs, and his best receiving season (9 receptions for 74 yards). His 2022 season was his best, with 825 yards from 128 carries and 14 TDs, but had limited work as a receiver. Opted to return to college, where he struggled to get much time on the field- only playing in 6 games and had limited production on the field.

Scouting Report

Positives

Williams has the size to move the pile, and effectively fights for extra yards after contact. He has shown that he is happy to take on the workload out of a backfield, if given the opportunity. He has a decent burst too, and can beat defenders who underestimate his acceleration. Williams knows where his blocks are, and knows how to use them effectively. Works well in pass protection too

Negatives

Doesn’t have top-level speed that would enable him to break away from defenders in space. He has also had really limited work as a receiver, so is very one-dimensional as a prospect.

Pre Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital- Round 6/7

Landing Spots

Williams would fit into an offense that needs someone to carry in short-yardage and goal-line conversions as he should be able to move the pile.
