Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

An outstanding receiver out of the backfield, shows strong hands making tough catches with defenders pressing down on him. Shows an adequate ability to create on his own, does better sticking with the scheme of the play being north south runner. Footwork is above the line quiet through mesh, gets into breakdown when making cuts at times. Is able to run inside well, keeps shoulder square to the LOS and is able to hide in behind blocks. Outside runs are adequate due to lack of speed and length to gain the edge. Williams has an average ability to make you miss, has the ability in the open field but struggles with burst after making the move. Has had 7 fumbles in career, 4 coming from the 2021 season alone.

Kyren Williams was the 2020 ACC Freshman of the year & FWAA Freshman All-American rushing for 1,125 yards on 213 carries for 13TDs. Williams was able to back that performance being named Captain and rushing for over 1,000 yards, with 14TD's, on 208 Carries. A smaller body type of back that is a strong powerful runner showing outstanding motor and overall toughness to handle running against heavier box counts.

Pass pro is above the line, has a willingness to stand in and deliver the contact or cut a downhill threat.
