Idaho H-back Williams taken by Redskins

Eddie Williams, the most productive offensive weapon for Idaho last season, was selected in the seventh round (No. 221 overall) of the NFL draft by the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon. Williams figured to be plucked a bit earlier had it not been for a knee injury late in the season that required several months of rehab.

The Redskins no doubt are intrigued by Williams’ versatility. He can play fullback, tight end or the hybrid position of H-back. Here’s what ESPN Scouts Inc. says of him.

Fellow former Vandal T.J. Conley wasn’t selected in the seven-round draft. The punter will most likely get a free-agent look.
