Exceptions to the norm tend to throw people off their game.

Take Phillip Lindsay, for example. The undrafted running back from Colorado became the first undrafted offensive rookie to be selected to the Pro Bowl. He also became the first undrafted running back to break the 1,000-yard rushing mark in back-to-back seasons.

Talk about a difficult player to appropriately evaluate.

Another player who is primed to break the mold for what is needed to succeed in the NFL is Preston Williams. While his rookie season was cut short due to injury, I believe this undrafted player has untapped potential.

On-Field Success / Off-Field Issues

To say that Williams had a tumultuous collegiate career off the field would be an understatement. He failed several drug tests during his time at both Tennessee and Colorado State and he was denied an invite to the NFL combine due to a physical altercation with his then ex-girlfriend.

On the field, he never received much of a chance until his first year with Colorado State which was also his last year in college. He broke onto the scene with a ridiculous stat line.
