Round 2 – Running back Javonte Williams, North Carolina
All cards on the table, I am a Tar Heels fan and have been my whole life. But no matter if I was one of those terrible Duke fans, I would still think Williams would be a great fit for the Seahawks. He is an excellent inside runner and assuming that new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron keeps most of the same concepts that the Rams have had in reason years, Seattle will have quite a few runs between the tackles.
Williams is 5’10” and 220 pounds with excellent leverage. On inside runs at North Carolina in 2020, Williams ran for 545 yards on 53 carries for an average of 10.3 yards a carry. He still has the quickness to bounce outside if needed, but Williams is the same kind of back that Chris Carson is as far as power and gaining the tough yards.
And that last part is important as I think Seattle will go running back with their first pick because they will likely need to replace Carson who will probably leave in free agency. Seattle relying on Rashaad Penny too much would be a mistake.
Williams has first round talent with his power and speed, ability to catch passes and is a good pass protector, but the running back position is undervalued currently in the NFL and hopefully, Williams will fall to the Seahawks in round 2.
