ESPN Fantasy Projection: Williams was selected by Denver with the 35th pick of the 2021 draft. The North Carolina product's calling card is elite tackle breaking and elusiveness. Williams has the second-best YAC (4.1) and forced missed tackle rates (3.0) in this year's class over the past three seasons and was top-two in both categories in 2020. Williams has good size (5-foot-10, 212 pounds) and is an aggressive and explosive rusher with respectable receiving production (his 25 catches in 2020 were third-most in this class). Williams is one of the youngest backs in this class (21) but will immediately step into a consistent role next to starter Melvin Gordon. He may start slow, but Williams figures to progressively take on more work as the season progresses. He'll be worth of a mid-round pick in season-long leagues.
