WR Jameson Williams is one of the most highly sought-after pass catchers in the NFL draft class.
Despite being injured in his last collegiate game, the dynamic receiver is landing first-round grades. He should hear his name called on Thursday, and now, we’re learning more about where he might wind up.
Williams is recovering from his January ACL tear more quickly than expected, leaving little doubt that he’ll be ready to go come Fall camp. When fully healthy, he’s certainly a first-round talent, and possibly the No. 1 wideout in the draft.
There are a number of teams that will take a receiver on Thursday night.
Teams like the Jets, Commanders, Chiefs, and Raiders could all be looking to add playmakers on the outside. The only question is, will Williams be there when the time comes to pick?
There’s apparently one team that’s eyeing the wideout big time, and they could make a move to land their guy.
Jameson Williams Says One Team Wants To Draft Him

Williams says that the Philadelphia Eagles would like to draft him. In meetings, they’ve said that the former Alabama star resembles DeVonta Smith (another Crimson Tide receiver).
“They told me they would love to see me alongside DeVonta [Smith]. I think that would be an explosive offense and something that nobody has seen before.”
That duo would certainly be a dangerous one at the NFL level. Smith led the team in receiving as a rookie in 2021. He nearly tallied a 1,000-yard season in an offense that’s largely built around the run game.
If the Eagles can land Williams, it could help Philly open up a little more. It would also give the team a three-headed Alabama monster with Williams, Smith, and quarterback Jalen Hurts.
We’ll see if Philadelphia can nab their guy on Thursday with the start of the NFL Draft.
