Yes, the headline reads like a hot take due to names such as Najee Harris and Travis Etienne taking up the spotlight. However, when we dive into the film, North Carolina's Javonte Williams displays incredible natural ability as a runner, and ultimately, that's why I have him as my top running back in the 2021 NFL Draft.
In the NFL, the best running backs are those who can consistently break tackles and create yards after contact. This, is where Williams thrives as at UNC he broke tackles at and unprecedented rate. In his final collegiate season, Pro Football Focus...
The top five quarterbacks in the 2021 NFL Draft are as locked in as they can get at this point in the process.

This year, however, the NFL Scouting Combine was all but canceled. That means no centralized location for teams to get all the information they can on 300+ prospects. That also means the 2021 Senior Bowl just became that much more important for some prospects to showcase their skillsets to the NFL.
The Senior Bowl is the premier all-star game of the offseason where every NFL is highly represented. It...
