The Denver Broncos get aggressive selecting Javonte Williams by trading up five spots for the running back from North Carolina.

Javonte Williams has the opportunity to be an absolute superstar of a back. This selection allows the Denver Broncos flexibility and insurance in case the team decides to move on from Melvin Gordon after the 2021 season.

One significant move on the 2021 depth chart might be Royce Freeman. Williams, on the other hand, is challenging for the starting running back job maybe even earlier on and free agent Mike Boone solidified the third spot on the running back depth chart.
