Before Steve Slaton, there was Domanick Williams (nee Davis).  Williams wasn't exactly explosive or, heck, even exciting in the purist sense of the word.  Williams was a workhorse, one asked to run behind offensive lines with all the tensile strength of styrofoam,  But rush he did, putting up two 1,000-yard seasons and one at 976 yards, which he did in just 11 games before being hurt.  He was also extremely solid catching balls out of the backfield, which was lock-step with this scouting report.  For a 4th Round pick, 101st overall, Williams provided an excellent return for your Houston Texans.

Finding Texans highlights for Williams are difficult, which is really kind of sad.  Here are a couple for your amusement.

Unfortunately, Williams' career ended because of an injury to his knee.  Williams finished his career with 3,195 rushing yards and 23 rushing TDs, both still the top on the Texans' career leader board, and 1,276 yards receiving.  The only thing that keeps him this low on the list is the shortness of his career, which, unfortunately, was just 40 games.
