For the third straight year, he was named as the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year.

2006

Though at one point he was considered a top ten pick, with some projecting him as high as #4 overall to the New York Jets, Williams saw his draft stock fall in weeks preceding the draft, as many teams filled their needs at the running back position via free agency. On April 29, 2006, he was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the first round with the 27th overall pick in the NFL Draft. He joined Reggie Bush, LenDale White, Laurence Maroney, and Joseph Addai, among others, in a promising draft class at running back. He became the highest drafted player out of the Memphis Tigers program since Bob Rush went 24th overall in 1977. In addition, he became the highest drafted running back from the Memphis Tigers. Williams adopted the jersey #34, which he wore in high school, and which was the same as his hero at the time, Ricky Williams.

2007

In the 2007 season, Williams continued to back up DeShaun Foster. He had his first 100-yard game of the season in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals with 10 carries for 121 rushing yards. In the fourth quarter, he clinched the 25–10 victory with a 75-yard run, the longest in team history, only to be tackled short of the goal line. On the next play, he ran the ball to the right corner of endzone for his first touchdown of the season. The next five weeks, he had 97 total rushing yards due to limited playing time. In the final week of the regular season, Williams rushed for 121 yards on 20 carries while scoring two touchdowns in the 31–23 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He finished the season with 144 carries for 717 rushing yards and led the team with four rushing touchdowns. He finished ninth in the NFL in yards per carry (5.0).

2010

During the 2010 Pro Bowl, Williams scored a touchdown on a seven-yard run, the first by a Panthers player in team history. He finished the game with two carries for six yards and a touchdown, as well as a 15-yard reception.

On October 24, 2010, Williams injured his right foot during the Panthers' home win against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7. He did not play again before being placed on injured reserve on November 17, 2010, with what was announced to be a mid-foot sprain. Williams finished the year with 361 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown on 87 rushes to go along with 11 receptions for 61 receiving yards. On July 27, 2011, Williams signed a five-year, $43 million contract extension to stay with the Panthers.

2011

In 2011, the Panthers drafted Cam Newton as their starting quarterback. This resulted in a three-way split for carries between Williams, Stewart, and Newton. Williams helped the trio finish third in the league in total rushing yards with 2,408. The Panthers finished first in average yards per carry and first in total touchdowns with 26. Williams finished the season with 155 carries for 836 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns to go along with 16 receptions for 135 receiving yards.

2012

In 2012, the Panthers signed former San Diego Chargers fullback Mike Tolbert. The signing meant that Williams's carries would be split further with Stewart, Newton, and Tolbert. In Week 17, against the New Orleans Saints, he rushed 21 times for a career-high 210 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in the 44-38 victory. Although he played every game of the season, he only started 10 of the games. He recorded 737 yards on 173 attempts. He scored five rushing touchdowns and two receiving touchdowns.

In the 2013 season, Williams had 201 carries, his most attempts since his Pro Bowl season in 2009. However, he did not make much out of these carries, only rushing for 843 yards. He scored three rushing touchdowns, his fewest since his injury plagued season in 2010, and one receiving touchdown.

2014

Williams rushed for 72 yards on 12 attempts in the season-opening 20–14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Coach Ron Rivera has said that Williams would be able to return for week nine. In a Week 13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Williams fractured his right middle finger. He was listed as day to day. He missed a Week 14 victory over the New Orleans Saints due to his hand injury. He was listed as doubtful for the week fifteen game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After missing the final two games of the season versus the Cleveland Browns and the Atlanta Falcons respectively, Williams returned for the Wild Card Round versus the Arizona Cardinals. He saw very limited action, only carrying the ball four times for 16 yards and no receptions in a 27–16 victory.

After two weeks in the 2016 season, he was the league leader in rushing yards after rushing for 146 yards against the Washington Redskins in the season opener and 94 yards on a career-high 32 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in the next game. For his Week 1 performance, he earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week. His production dipped later on the season and he finished with 343 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns.
