Denver Broncos: Complete 7-round 2021 NFL mock draft
The beauty of trading back is this selection right here.
The Denver Broncos let Phillip Lindsay go this offseason, which was not a fan-approved move by any stretch.
Melvin Gordon is under contract for one more year, and the price tag on free agent Mike Boone combined with some exciting plays in a small sample has given fans enough of a tide-me-over until we all see what happens in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Because of Melvin Gordon’s contract situation, I’ve been saying all offseason that the running back position could be pretty high on George Paton’s priority list, and I still don’t think it’s impossible that the Broncos could use a first-round pick on Najee Harris or maybe even Travis Etienne.
With that being said, Javonte Williams is one of my favorite players in this draft class with his combination of size, pass-catching ability, tackle-breaking ability, and pass protecting chops.
Williams is not a burner in terms of his speed, but he is extremely physical and is bordering on impossible to take down in the open field one-on-one.
With his elusiveness, he could be a tremendous offensive weapon for the Denver Broncos, who already have a ton of those as it is. This would be your featured RB of the future.
