Jameson Williams Makes NFL Draft Decision Days After National Title Injury

Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams announced Thursday he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2022 NFL draft. 

Williams earned All-SEC honors in 2021 after tallying a conference-best 1,572 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns. He joined Alabama offensive tackle Evan Neal as Crimson Tide underclassmen to declare for the draft Thursday. 

“My brothers, we been thru it all, wish it could have ended differently but it's nothing up from here,” Williams wrote in his announcement on Instagram. “With all that being said, I am starting the next chapter and taking my talents to the 2022 NFL Draft.”
