Williams, Kenny (RB)

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2016, Gunderson Trade

Texas Tech Red Raiders RB Kenny Williams hailed from Pflugerville, Tx- right outside of Austin. He played four years in Lubbock, and had 322 carries for 1534 yards, 16 TDs while displaying a knack for the catch with 60 receptions for 631 yards and 4 TDs- and while he led the team in rushing both in 2012 and 2013, he switched to LB in 2014- the position he played in high school. Undersized (5-9 225), but fast, with ideal athleticism, Williams also was a solid special teams contributor.  Scouts still viewed him as an RB and he was tabbed as one for the 2015 NFL draft. He’d go unselected.

I think that a guy like Kenny with all the tools to play the game would make a great developmental fit for one of the new spring leagues like the AAF or the new XFL. Time will tell.
