Melvin Gordon led the Denver Broncos with 986 yards and nine rushing touchdowns last season and is confident he'll remain the team's leading running back.
Denver selected Javonte Williams in the second round of this year's NFL Draft.
"I'm going to go out there, do my job and compete, and wherever the cards fall, they fall," Gordon said. "I can't worry about [the positional battle] too much, even I know that’s kind of the talk right now. The media is making it Javonte versus Mel, who's going to start, this and that.
"But it's not really about that. It's about us winning football games and finding ways to compete... I'm trying to put the Broncos [back] on the map and keep us on the map."
