Javonte Williams might be the best running back in the 2021 NFL draft. The Broncos moved up at the beginning of the second round to secure his services and he will compete with veteran Melvin Gordon for the starting job. Williams is a powerful and natural runner who wastes little motion. He is a powerful player with the lower body strength to push the pile in short-yardage situations. Williams also breaks tackles with ease and has a stiff arm that would make Eddie George proud. His 75 broken tackles in 2020 led all FBS running backs, and he's taking this punishing style to the Mile High City. Williams was an important part of the Tarheels RBBC with Michael Carter. Even though he could be a lead back, Gordon is making so much money that Denver might opt to go with a RBBC in 2021. Williams should push for the starting job and might get the nod at some point during the regular season if not Week 1.
