I'm hesitant to use the phrase "speed demon", especially when Williams went in the seventh round of the draft, but Sayre Bedinger's article on the rookie RB is enough to get a little excited about. Although – as Bedinger mentions – there is a plethora of runningbacks ahead of him on the depth chart, Williams might find himself receiving a few kickoffs next year.
Williams’ versatility attracted the Colts, and I think as far as seventh round picks go, this was a heck of a choice by Indianapolis and a potentially really valuable late-round find. The speedster holds the WAC record for kick return yardage in a career, and holds 10 different Utah State, WAC, and FBS records. While at Utah State, Williams was used all over the place as a running back, return specialist, and slot receiver.
My dad seems pretty psyched about this guy; if he's used correctly, we might all be come midseason.
