STRENGTHS - Kerwynn has very good straight line speed that allows him to run away from defenders once in the open field. He shows good vision and patients to wait for holes to open in front of him. Although he is a short back he has a solid frame which makes him effective in short yardage runs. He is also a threat as a receiver as he shows soft, natural hands.
WEAKNESSES - His height is a concern and will limit his ability to be an every down back and strictly a rotational player. Even with his good speed he does not show the lateral quickness needed to make people miss or bounce runs outside when needed. When in one on one situations he rarely is able to make a move to get by tacklers. Does have a fumbling issue too.
SUMMARY - Kerwynn Williams spent most of his career as a back up but not due to the fact of a lack of skill, but instead just great talent in front of him on the depth chart. As a senior he grabbed the reigns and showed everyone the type of talent he possessed. He was very effective as a runner but is as effective as a receiver out of the backfield by being able to puck balls out of the air instead of letting them get into his body. He does have adequate bulk for a player his size but lacks the height and explosiveness to be an every down back at the NFL Level. He tends to need time to get up to speed before hitting his top gear but when he does he can run away from you. He could stand to work on his agility because he is at this point strictly a straight line guy that has not shown the consistent ability to make tacklers miss in the open field. He will more often just lower his head or get tripped up by single tacklers. Overall, Kerwynn Williams would make a nice late round pick and should spend a season on a practice squad to develop more before adding quality depth to a backfield.
