A transfer from Ohio State, Most people don’t realize that Jamison Williams isn’t built like your typical speed receiver. He has a bigger body type, not quite running back build but a strong frame that makes him even more capable after the catch, He was utilized as a gunner on punt coverage as well, showing that physicality that he brings on a daily basis. Between Williams and John Metchie, it was very difficult to distinguish the two on the field on tape.

Jameson Williams scouting report
Incredible speed. Will be among the top of his class. Game-breaking. Doesn’t change direction as well as some of the receivers in this class. Accelerates seamlessly and smooth. Incredible speed. Very explosive athlete.
Good route runner. Really want to see him run all the way through routes. Ran a good route tree at Alabama but isn’t as capable when working back to the ball on curls and comeback routes. Prefers to continue running through the catch point. Strong release ability.
Solid hands, corrals even poor throws with soft hands. Creates consistent catch angles to better receiver the ball. Great catch radius. Capable of making catches from just about any angle.Very consistent receiver. You don’t see him drop balls very often. Very serious deep threat. Brings that element every week with his speed. Smart, heady player. Works the sideline well and understands his mission. See’s the field well. Breaks angles with his speed. Very capable run blocker on the perimeter.
Jameson Williams best projects as a speed threat who can stretch the field vertically. While Williams is more than just a speed threat, his draft position will be determined by what he is capable of producing from the big play. We think he’s a borderline starter at the next level right now, but is hampered by his ACL injury suffered against Georgia in the National Championship.
We think that Williams is a little bit more limited out of the Alabama star duo at wide receiver. While there is no doubt that he was the faster between he and his star teammate, John Metchie. However, Metchie is the more versatile prospect, more capable as a route runner and in multiple fashions of the game. Williams offers a big play threat every down he takes the field, which teams will look to use with his angle-breaking speed. We like Williams as a first/second round pick and we think he has a good chance to make an impact as soon as he can get on the field.
