Camp outlook: At 6-foot-3 and 221 pounds, Williams is the biggest of the Steelers’ running backs and has an upright running style that leads to violent collisions, but also allows him to get up the field quickly.
Projected role: It’s probably a battle for the practice squad for the Steelers running backs behind Benny Snell on the depth chart.
