Williams came from Victoria and represented his state at Under-17 level, where he was an All-Australian. A forward, he came the way of Adelaide in the 1995 AFL Draft, with a pick that they had received from Geelong in return for Martin McKinnon. After spending the 1996 season playing in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) with West Adelaide, Williams appeared in the opening seven rounds for Adelaide in 1997.
He was traded, along with Matthew Collins, to Melbourne at the end of the year, in return for defender Nathan Bassett. Although he led the reserves' goal-kicking in 1998, he was unable to break into the seniors.
