INDIANAPOLIS --- The Colts signed running back Trey Williams off the Dolphins practice squad Tuesday. Teams sign players off practice squads every week, but the measurables Williams posted at the NFL Combine are notable, after going undrafted and originally being signed as a free agent by Washington in May.
Williams 4.49 40-yard dash at Lucas Oil Stadium back in February was 3rd among running backs, only behind rookie standouts Jeremy Langford (Bears) and Karlos Williams (Bills).
Williams 3-cone drill time was also third at the Combine, behind only Lions second round pick Ameer Abdullah and Cardinals third round pick David Johnson, who NFL fans saw explode on Sunday Night Football against the Eagles. Williams was also a top performer in the 20-yard shuttle, finishing in the top-5 among RBs at the Combine.
The knock on Williams coming out of Texas A&M was his frame, at 5'7" and 195 pounds but his skill set has led to a handful of teams giving him a look in 2015. He's spent time in Washington, Dallas, New England, and Miami on either the active roster or practice squad (both in New England).
His NFL.com draft profile described him as "one of the best'make-you-miss' types in this draft." We'll see if the Colts give him a look over the final two games of the season.
