A treat for the Minnesota Vikings fans whom may not be familiar with some of the smaller-school signings…
Dominique Williams Scouting Report
–measured just under 5’9, and a stout 205 pounds at Wagner Pro Day. Although suffering from a nagging back injury, Williams still pulled off a 4.65 official 40 yard dash. Showed good strength with 19 bench press reps (1 more than the husky Lorenzo Taliaferro put up at the NFL Combine). On the field, rushed for over 4,400 yards and 42 touchdowns over his career. Saw a dip in production in senior year as teams keyed in on him alone with literally no threat of a passing game (Wagner QB’s combined for 7 touchdowns, 17 interceptions & completed only 48 % of their passes in 2013)… junior season Williams rushed for 1,328 yards with 13 touchdowns and averaged 5 yards per carry…sophomore year Williams rushed for 1,338 yards with 14 touchdowns and a 4.9 ypc average in a more balanced offense. Flashes game-breaking ability on tape, good cut-back ability, vision, balance and burst in the open field. Famously hurdled a defender vs. Bryant in 2012. Workhorse back in college that will break a big gainer if given enough carries. Has proven durable over the last 3 seasons as the team’s best and most game-planned player. Hard worker..driven individual with excellent character, absolutely no red flags. Will make a 53 man roster and prosper if given the right opportunity.
