Javonte Williams: ‘I’m just so excited right now’

“This is something I worked my whole life for.”

“I’m blessed to be in this position,” Williams said in a press conference last night, “This is the reason why I started playing football at a young age—just to be here.”

Williams admitted that he didn’t expect to be drafted by the Broncos, especially since he didn’t talk to them a lot throughout the process, although Curtis Modkins (RB coach) attended his Pro Day.
