Career Summary: Keiland Williams was an effective running back for LSU and had a big game against Notre Dame in the 2007 Sugar Bowl. Williams was a good depth running back for the Redskins in 2010 and has been an effective back up in Detroit in 2011. Williams was released October of 2012 by the Lions and the Redskins re-signed him shortly after he was released to provide depth behind Alfred Morris.

What is coming in 2013: Williams will have to impress the coaches a great deal in order to make the 2013 roster. He will have to compete against four other running backs on the roster. Roy Helu is listed as the second string RB behind Alfred Morris. Evan Royster is listed as the third stringer, with Chris Thompson, Jawan Jamison, and Williams as "other." Williams may be the odd man out on the roster if the Coaches want to make an effort to keep their new and younger draft picks on the roster. Even though Williams showed flashes of talent in the past, he is fighting an uphill battle to make the 2013 Redskins roster.
