Wideout Jameson Williams – Alabama
Jameson Williams #1 – 6-2, 180 Alabama – Sp. 4.45
NFL Comparison: DeAndre Hopkins Rating 91
Smooth athletic true junior finished his career with an ACL knee injury which terminated an outstanding breakout performance in the potent Bama attack. Earned first team SEC honors in 2021 as one of the nation’s premier playmakers. Lanky well-built physique with length and solid muscle development. Fluid mover with very good agility, hands and athleticism to rank among the best in this class. Combination of deceptive speed and overall AA with the skills necessary to become an impact starter. Burst to get open and the leaping skills to go up for the ball and make plays. Displays soft reliable hands with the ability to extend outside the frame. Makes the difficult catch in traffic, earning him the go-to receiver role. Long strider with the ability to run away from defenders and the length to create problems for smaller cover men on 50/50 balls. Gets off the line well with quickness into his routes and the ability to sink his hips and separate coming out of his breaks. He has developed a full route tree and the ability to win vs the double team. Highly polished skill set to be a fine #1 receiver. His route running and defensive recognition are very advanced. Fights through the bump and run and stays on his routes well, though needs definite strength development and improved hand technique. Dangerous runner after the catch with elusiveness, sudden quickness and deceptive speed to run away from tacklers to break plays.
The Numbers: In 2020, he was buried in the deep Ohio St receiving corps which features multiple pro prospects. He totaled only 9 catches for 154 yards for a 17.1-yard average and 2 TDs. Took advantage of the transfer rule and landed at Alabama where he became an instant star on another deep unit. Only 10 kickoff returns in 2021 with 2 TDs. At the NFL Combine, he came in just under 6’2” and 179 lbs. He did not workout due to rehabbing from his ACL surgery. Also sat out the Bama pro day.
The Skinny: Provides a nice target with strong wiry frame and deceptive quickness to create space. Fast developing prospect really came on late in his career with continuous strong performances. Developed athlete with fine route running and defensive recognition skills to be an immediate factor. Reads coverage quickly and knows where the openings are to settle into zones and makes sound adjustments. Reminiscent of NFL playmaker DeAndre Hopkins in size, speed, running style and versatility. Well-rounded skill set to give his club a plug and play weapon. Top 20 prospect with definite upside if he improves his reads and route tree. Tough smart athlete made fast adjustments after transferring from Ohio St before the 2021 season Legitimate dangerous deep threat. If healthy, he is at a high level to come in and play immediately. NFL ready and possible first overall receiver in this deep class. Best efforts in big games where he made a difference. Playmaker with Pro bowl talent. Cards, Jets, Chiefs and Packers very interested.
