Pooka Williams is an exciting and electric prospect that should be classified as more of an "offensive weapon" than a RB. He was given plenty of work in between the tackles at Kansas, but was highly inefficient with his opportunity in their gap/power scheme. Williams could be more effective in a wide-zone scheme, but the vision and ability to navigate traffic will force him to be more of an outside the tackles runner than anything else. His size also plays a large role in this as well. Fantastic short-area burst and possesses the ability to go 0-60 quickly when he finds an open running lane. Excellent change of direction and ability to stop on a dime. This is needed at his size and for the role he'll play in the NFL. Willing to lower his shoulder and embrace contact at the second level, but at 180 pounds, he's not going to move any defender backwards. Fantastic top-end speed and has enough to threaten defenses deep. Can move out from RB alignment and stretch the field as a receiving option with his athleticism. Good contact balance and able to keep his feet under him well. Won't break away from too many NFL tackles, but did show the ability to keep his legs churning and slip through arm tackles in college. Excellent pass-catcher and he has the potential to soak up targets in the NFL at every level of the field. Can run everything from wheel routes to option routes out of the backfield. Also has the ability to adjust to the ball while it's in the air and make the difficult catch. Willing to stand in the way, but he's not going to be someone that NFL coaches trust to stand in on 3rd down and keep the QB clean in pass protection. Overall, Williams has the potential to make an impact in the NFL, but he has to go to a coaching staff that's going to be willing to be creative with him and move him around the formation. Putting him squarely into a RB role will not work for him in the NFL. Most likely a Day 3 pick.
