Javonte Williams Highlights

Javonte Williams NFL Draft Profile

Strengths

Javonte Williams is a violent runner. Despite seeking contact, he also recorded the most elusive season Pro Football Focus has ever graded. Williams has tremendous burst and balance, with the ability to stay on his feet and break tackles.

Weaknesses

Williams does not have great hands, dropping three of 27 catchable passes. He disappeared when facing Clemson, which is obviously the game he needed to show up in, playing in the ACC. Williams also doesn’t have long speed and has been labeled as a “one-year wonder,” though most college prospects could technically be given this label.
