Alabama’s Jameson Williams is the home run threat the Jaguars’ offense needs.

The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has looked stoic in 2021. However, Alabama’s 2022 NFL Draft prospect Jameson Williams could provide the team with a severe jolt of vitality this offseason.

Most recently, the Crimson Tide standout scored three touchdowns while averaging an outstanding 23.8 yards per catch in Bama’s latest victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Moreover, out of all Power 5 conferences in collegiate football, the Ohio State transfer currently ranks in the top five in terms of receiving yards per reception on the season. It begs the question of what exactly makes him a top-tier prospect? Here’s a sample of what Williams can do on the football field:

Why should the Jaguars consider drafting Williams in the 2022 NFL Draft?

Alabama’s Jameson Williams’ possesses God-given athletic ability that doesn’t just separate him from other athletes but also opposing defensive backs on the football field as well.

As a result, Williams is quickly rocketing up draft boards from well-respected NFL talent evaluators. From an off-the-field standpoint, he is a ferocious competitor that legendary Alabama head coach Nick Saban has given high praise.

Despite only being on the receiving end of 15 receptions at Ohio State in the first three years of his collegiate career, Williams withstood the tough times and is making the most of his opportunities in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. His abilities to seemingly defy the odds would be welcome in a struggling receiver room for the Jaguars.

The Jaguars’ offense needs a wide receiver that can separate.

The Jaguars’ 2021 campaign has not been kind to their wide receivers. With D.J. Chark succumbing to season-ending injured reserve, it left a void of production that has not been filled. The rest of the group has generated minimal separation when facing single coverage this season. The tight throwing windows and drops have contributed to an underwhelming rookie offensive campaign for Trevor Lawrence this year.

Alabama’s Jameson Williams can quickly rectify this situation for the Jaguars. He can become a consistent offensive playmaker, and more importantly, a reliable downfield target that can open up the offense for other players to produce. Look for the Black and Teal to target Williams in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft as head coach Urban Meyer has emphasized athleticism in Jacksonville so far.
