90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Damien Williams

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at running back Damien Williams.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.


2014 Review:

2014 was Williams' first year with the Dolphins.

He appeared in all 16 games and recorded 36 carries for 122 yards. Also had 21 receptions for 187 yards and 1 touchdown.

Why he might progress:

Williams showed some promise as an undrafted free agent. He was the favorite to win the number 2 running back position, backing up Lamar Miller. That is, until Jay Ajayi was drafted.

Should see some work in goal line situations.

Why he might regress:

Ajayi is now the favorite to win the number 2 running back spot, meaning Williams will be the number 3 running back.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Williams will be on the roster as a backup running back. The coaching staff really likes him and could see more playing time as the year goes on.
