Utah State's Kerwynn Williams was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 230th pick in the NFL Draft.

Williams will be trying to make a name for himself at the running back position, as did his teamamaates Robert Turbin and Michael Smith. That due was drated in 2012 by the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaners.

During his senior season at Utah State, Williams helped Utah State win the WAC title by rushing for 1,512 yards and 15 touchdowns. Williams is not a tall back standing at just 5-feet-8 and just 195 pounds, but that makes him hard to find and tackle when breaking through the line of scrimmage. Despite being a smaller back, Williams is perfectly capable of running between the tackles as apposed to some slighter runners who like to take to the outside.

He also has the ability to go out and play wide receiver and catch the ball out of the backfield, he is not an amazing pass catcher but he gets the job done.

Due to his size being an everydown or starting running back is not likely in the cards, but that may not matter much as teams us multiple running backs istead of a singular workhorse ball carrier. He needs to work on pass protection and also creating quicker moves when in the open field.

Being a pass catcher will help his case to make a team and he might possibly need to see time on special teams, possibly as a returner.

Here are highlights of Williams:
