2017

2016

Williams earned a bit of playing time at the University of Arkansas as a true freshman, and then shared the backfield with Alex Collins in 2013 and 2014, with both players enjoying sustained success. Seemingly headed for the early to middle rounds, Williams missed his entire senior year with a foot injury, causing him to slip to the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He proved his health by running a 4.59 40-yard dash at his pro day - a solid time for a player listed at 6-0, 223 pounds. The Bills may have gotten a steal in the fifth round, but even if Williams has starter potential down the line, he'll likely open the season fourth on the depth chart, behind LeSean McCoy, Mike Gillislee and Reggie Bush.
