The NFL Draft starts Thursday night in Las Vegas, Nev.
Jameson Williams, an Alabama football alum, will be one of several players in attendance. He exploded as college football’s most electric wide receiver in 2021, totaling 79 catches for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Williams destroyed defensive backfields in the Southeastern Conference and paced Alabama’s offense to an SEC Championship and an appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. He was an All-American and first-team All-SEC performer while earning SEC Co-Special Teams Player of the Year. Williams needed one season to put the NFL on notice, but a knee injury (anterior cruciate ligament) in the CFP National Championship Game hurt him and the Crimson Tide versus Georgia.
Before the injury, he had a top-15 draft projection on him. Some media pundits have him late first-round, but NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has Williams coming off the board early. Rapoport said regardless of the injury, it would not surprise him if Williams came off the board in the top 15. He does not have the speedster as the first receiver taken, but Rapoport has Williams taken high.

We will see which team rolls the dice on a very electrifying talent.
