The Broncos selected Williams in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, ranking 219th overall.

Williams (6-foot-3, 211 pounds) is a big underdog from Auburn who was expected to get at least two laps early so he could be a steal for the Broncos in the late sixth. With a speed of 4.49 and a vertical height of 37 inches, Williams has the tools to function as a viable external receiver in the NFL, though Denver already has a long list of outstanding pass-catching prospects ahead of him.
