How do Damien Williams’ measurables compare to other running backs?


This section compares his draft workout metrics with players at the same position. The bar represents the player’s percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that metric and it would be considered average.

Picked up from the Dolphins last offseason, Williams had trouble staying healthy in preseason but still won the No. 3 RB job behind Kareem Hunt and Spencer Ware. There he stayed for 11 games, playing 17 offensive snaps before Hunt’s release pushed Williams into a prominent role. Over Kansas City’s final five games, including two postseason games, Williams averaged 5.2 YPC, produced 100 scrimmage yards three times and scored eight TDs (five rushing, three receiving) — a finish good enough to earn him a two-year, $5.1 million contract extension. While he doesn’t have any standout traits, Williams fits the Chiefs offense well, as his receiving skills can keep him on the field in all situations and nimble feet help him keep his balance in traffic. The late addition of LeSean McCoy suggests the team might not view Williams as a true starter and will instead look to deploy a timeshare in the backfield (perhaps a prudent decision given his injury history) but even if Williams gets capped at
12-15 touches per game, he demonstrated in 2018 that he can be productive in coach Andy Reid’s system with that kind of workload.

A backup in each of his first four campaigns, Williams drew the first four starts of his career during the 2017 campaign. However, he toted the rock just 46 times over 11 games total last season, making the majority of his impact — 20 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown — as a pass-catching back for the Dolphins. Charcandrick West filled that role for the Chiefs behind Kareem Hunt during the 2017 season and remains on the roster. Moreover, the eventual return of Spencer Ware from a PCL and LCL injury, along with with the signing of Kerwynn Williams complicates the team’s backfield further. Williams, at best, will likely slot into a supplementary role for Kansas City in 2018.

Williams figures to open the season as the primary backup to Jay Ajayi. In three NFL seasons, Williams only has 87 rushing attempts versus 65 receptions, the latter of which signifies where his utility lies. Consequently, if Ajayi were ever to go down, the Dolphins may roll with a running back by committee rather than increase Williams’ carry count.

With the signing of Arian Foster, Williams is still no better than third on the RB depth chart and will likely be fighting for a roster spot in training camp. In two seasons with Miami, Williams has only had 52 carries for 181 yards. Those hare hardly statistics that scream future starter. Still, a strong showing in camp could put Williams in line for a larger role this season, as Miami has more quantity than quality at RB at this point in time.

Williams was signed as an undrafted free agent by Miami last May and did little to suggest he will be provide the Dolphins with anything more than depth at running back, something the team may no longer need due to the addition of Jay Ajayi in the fifth round of this year’s draft. With Ajayi in tow, the Dolphins sport five running backs on their roster, possibly one more than they will carry into the season. This could mean that whomever performs best on special teams out of LaMichael James, Mike Gillislee and Williams will ultimately have the best chance at making the team. It also means that special teams could be Williams’ biggest contribution to the 2015 Miami Dolphins.

Williams was signed as an undrafted free agent in May and will give the Dolphins some depth at running back but he’s fighting an uphill battle to make the team.
