Even without the pads on, it's clear second-round pick Javonte Williams has the talent to be a dynamic player for Denver's offense.
His practice on Monday was not unlike others throughout the first five days of training camp, as he made an impact both on the ground and in the passing game. Williams said he worked on his receiving abilities this offseason, citing the need to be an all-around back.

HC Vic Fangio said, "He's showing his versatility. He can run a route as well as carry the ball. We think he can block, although that hasn't been tested yet to the nth degree. We like him. He's done everything that we expected up to this point." So far, most, not all, seem to agree that Gordon remains the RB1, at least for now. But the Broncos traded up to get Williams so it may only be a matter of time. But Gordon had 1,144 total yards and 4.7 YPC, so it may not be that easy for Williams to pass him.
