2012 Stats: 40 Rushing Yards, 1 Rushing Touchdown, 30 Receptions, 334 Receiving Yards, 0 Receiving Touchdowns

What is coming in 2013: Nick Williams was a great kickoff and punt returner during his during his career with the Huskies. Williams had 2,045 kick off return yards over his four year career along with 470 punt return yards. He also played some snaps on the defensive side of the ball for UConn. He was a versatile player in college that will fight to make the Redskins roster doing whatever he can to be on the team. Williams is unlikely to make the team, but the returner jobs do not have any definitive starters yet, so Williams could sneak his way on the roster. I think he is more likely to be on the practice squad or released before the season starts. But if Williams can make plays like this one below, he just might make the roster.
