NFL Draft Odds: Will Jameson Williams Sneak Back into the First Wide Receiver Pick Conversation?

In the National Championship game against Georgia, star Wide Receiver Jameson Williams tore his ACL. He was already having a huge day before the injury knocked him out catching four passes for 65 yards against a very good Georgia defense.

He was considered someone who was going to be coming off the board early but after the ACL injury, draft experts expected him to slide. Well, now that he is showing great progress just two months later does he enter the first wide receiver pick conversation?

First Wide Receiver Pick Odds

Garrett Wilson+115
Drake London+135
Jameson Williams+850
Treylon Burks+900
Chris Olave+1400
Jahan Dotson+3500
Christian Watson+3500
Skyy Moore+5000

Jameson Williams +850 (Bet $100 to win $850)

This is simply a value play. A lot of teams around the NFL love both Garrett Wilson and Drake London and more likely than not they will be one of the first receivers taken. This isn't for the "safe" play. This is a where can I find value and take a little bit of a risk play. It's just the right amount of crazy that could actually work.

Before the ACL, Williams was my WR1 heading into the draft, and with his production, it's hard to argue against it. He had 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns after transferring over from Ohio State. His lone season over at Alabama was tremendous and unfortunately, one freak play might have cost him. Until he started recovering with the speed that he has.

In the NFL Draft, it's all about upside. Sure, Garrett Wilson and Drake London have that upside but for a league that is leaning so heavily on speed look no further than Jameson Williams.

Allegedly, Jameson Williams was running a 4.4 40-yard dash in high school and was in the 4.3's when transferring to Alabama. His speed is downright insane, and if some team convinces themselves that he is going to be fully recovered in time for the season and/or that he's worth it regardless, then we just got a big +850 payout.

I don't know something about Williams' activity and many analysts suggesting that he wouldn't fall very far regardless of injury got me thinking. Perhaps him showing off his legs is only going to help his cause on draft day.
