2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Keiland Williams, RB, LSU

Williams has plenty of talent, but was never a true go-to guy during his career at running back for LSU. Still, he managed to post solid numbers. As a freshman in 2006 he carried 76 times for 436 yards and five touchdowns, and in 2007 he ran 70 times for 478 yards and six scores while splitting time with Jacob Hester. Williams slipped a bit as a junior (83 carries for 417 yards and two scores) when classmate Charles Scott took over primary RB duties. Although he made a wise move to return to Baton Rouge, Williams did not see the decision pay off in terms of helping his draft stock. He suffered a broken ankle against Ole Miss on November 14 to bring a premature end to a disappointing season (although he was averaging 5.3 ypc at the time of his injury). Williams is an explosive back who can also excel at returning kicks, but he needs to improve at running between the tackles. He has the size (6'0 and 221 pounds) to be successful in that capacity, but he has been unable to get the job done on a consistent basis (just like he does when he runs around the ends or catches passes out of the backfield). Williams can run in the 4.4s in the 40-yard-dash and his speed and change of direction ability make him a terror in the open field. He could have been drafted as early as the third round with a clean bill of health, but the injury makes him a question mark. Look for Williams to go off the board sometime on Day 2 of the 2010 draft.
