Denver Broncos: 5 players with roster status soaring after Seahawks win
5. Seth Williams, WR
The photography powers that be didn’t have an image of Seth Williams from the game against the Seattle Seahawks, so this moment before he caught a really nifty pass from Drew Lock will have to do.
Here is what I would contend was the play of the game for the Denver Broncos against Seattle.
If someone like Pat Mahomes, Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Josh Allen did something like this, the internet and sports talking head world would be freaking out.
I’m not even sure it made the Sports Center top plays segment.
Drew Lock flipped the ball to Seth Williams, who did some outstanding work in the open field and after the catch to make a play.
I don’t want to do too much overreacting to this play, but Williams’ combination of size, speed, and potential as an after-the-catch threat are all impossible to ignore on this particular play.
There simply aren’t many guys on the Denver Broncos roster right now with this combination of physical gifts and athletic tools.
Williams is a very intriguing talent whose struggles last season at Auburn may have been more on the quarterback play than anything else, and I think the Broncos got him two or three rounds later than he looked at his best on tape.
Denver Broncos: Drew Lock should be the starting QB in 2021
The Denver Broncos have to make a decision on the QB1 of the team soon. That decision has been made tough by the QBs, which makes it an easy one. Drew Lock.
If wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni can get some time with Williams, I think he’s a fun future WR4 option behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and KJ Hamler.
