TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama Crimson Tide star wide receiver Jameson Williams has declared for the NFL draft. The junior is one of the nation's best players, having led the SEC in receiving yards (1,572), receiving touchdowns (15), and return touchdowns (2) in 2021.

Williams is recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee, an injury he suffered in the National Championship Game against Georgia on January 10. Doctors believe that Williams will retain his sub 4.3 speed after surgery, and they expect a full recovery, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

He is rated the No. 1 wide receiver and No. 6 prospect available overall for the 2022 NFL draft by both ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay.

Williams transferred from Ohio State prior to the 2021 season.
