Kasen Williams fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional football player when he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Williams came into college as one of the nation's most highly-regarded high school recruits, earning a five-star evaluation from Scout.com and recognition as Parade Magazine's high-school player of the year. His freshman and sophomore campaigns proved worthy of those expectations as he quickly became one of quarterback Keith Price's favorite targets, leading the team in 2012 in receptions (77) and yards (878), and finishing as runner-up in receiving touchdowns (6). His fortunes took a downward turn in his junior year, though, when he suffered a broken leg and Lisfranc injury against Cal, and didn't seem to come close to regaining his pre-injury form until the final four games of the 2014 season.

Check out the draft profile we wrote for Kasen, and see some highlights from his 2012 performance against Stanford below.
