One of the areas that isn't getting a lot of attention as the 2021 NFL Draft approaches is the running back position. However, that's not to say that there aren't any talented backs. In fact, North Carolina RB Javonte Williams is one of them.
Williams rushed for 1,140 yards and 19 touchdowns in 11 games with North Carolina in 2020. He was also relatively active in the passing game, turning 25 receptions into 305 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns.
With the way things are shaping up, Williams projects to be an early second-round pick next week.
