Scouting Report on Kenny Williams

  • ElusivenessDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Williams is a tall, very muscular back that looks a lot like Texas A&M star Christine Michael.
Needs Improvement: He seems a bit stiff in the hips right now. Williams will need to work on his flexibility, which should help with avoiding defenders in the open field. He needs to work on his body control while making catches on balls thrown behind him.
Most Impressive: This huge, powerful back is explosive. He is the type of runner that will wear defenses out in the second half. He has excellent forward body lean and the speed to get to the outside.
Conclusion: He could see playing time early because not many backs are as big or powerful as he is. Look for him to be a real goal-line threat and short-yardage wizard.
