Alabama consistently produces top talent at wide receiver for the NFL Draft, with two first-round picks in each of the last two drafts. At the start of the season, John Metchie III came in with the pedigree and potential to put up massive numbers as the star of the Crimson Tides offense. However, it’s Jameson Williams on the opposite side of the field that has ended up getting the attention.
Williams transferred from Ohio State to Alabama, where an opportunity arose with Devonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle leaving for the NFL.
Jameson has made an impact on Alabama's offense. In only eight games this season, Williams ranks second in the SEC in yards (710), receiving yards per game (88.8), yards per reception (20.29), tied for third in receiving touchdowns (6), and ninth in receptions (35). He has earned a spot on the Fred Biletnikoff Award watch list earlier this month, given to the best pass catcher in college football.
Williams has clearly developed as the best receiver prospect on the Crimson Tide, and will most likely be picked in the top half of the first round in the 2022 NFL draft.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Very good hands accepts the ball fluidly on most throws and is ready to make a play afterward. Makes catches in traffic, even going up over taller defenders with vertical and toughness.
  • He is a monster with his ability to stretch the field vertically and track the deep ball.
  • Williams has been Alabama’s most productive pass catcher and he’s also had two kickoff return touchdowns.
  • A slippery runner with elusive footwork. Has little to no wasted movements between the reception and burst upfield.
  • Combines speed, balance, quickness, vision, and crisp cuts to leave defensive backs and linebackers in the dust.
  • A pass-catcher that dominates at the start of a route due to his explosive quickness and short-area burst, his ability to couple his isolation skills with sure hands and YAC ability is the best in college football
  • Fits a zone system, can sift through oncoming traffic and explode through tiny creases and cutback lanes. Elite, darting stop-and-go acceleration.
  • A high school track star who won Missouri state championships in both the 300-meter hurdles and 400-meter dash
  • Similar Crimson Tide standout and Denver Broncos first-rounder Jerry Jeudy, although even more explosive
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Doesn't currently have the size to consistently win on the outside.
