All practices in fall camp were closed to the media, but word seeped about a few things here and there, such as Dom Williams having a very good camp.

A shoulder injury and a lack of blocks slowed Williams during his freshman season, but he showed potential, making sharp cuts and showing good speed.

He has added a layer of muscle this season, which could help him break more tackles and become more durable.

Williams rushed for 176 yards and three touchdowns last season and averaged 3.5 yards per carry, not a great average but second on the team only to Khalil Herbert (5.5) among running backs. He combined for 105 rushing yards in the first two weeks of the season and then rushed for just 71 yards for the rest of the season.

I already know who you are picking for 1 and 2. But if I told you you will change them so I wouldn't be correct.
