ERIC EDHOLM: North Carolina running back, Javonte Williams, one 1/2 of maybe the best running back duo in college football last year, along with Michael Carter, but we've got Williams ahead of Carter as an NFL prospect for his combination of size, speed, and burst. It was borderline comical watching Williams last year bounce off of would be tacklers like an angry kid driving a bumper car. He's got more juice and wiggle than you might expect as well, given that he's 220 pounds. Now, he may not hit a lot of home runs in the NFL, may lack that long speed, and he's not yet a complete back on 3rd downs, but nonetheless, we get some serious Nick Chubb vibes in watching Williams, maybe with just a hair less long speed than Chubb has.
