Alabama held its pro day Wednesday, but one of the Crimson Tide prospects who could hear his name called out early in the upcoming NFL draw, Jameson Williams, was not among those training for future teams. The wideout is still recovering from a torn ACL he sustained in the National Championship against Georgia. He had surgery about 10 weeks ago to repair the knee, so he is still relatively early in the rehabilitation process.

That said, Williams shared: James Palmer of NFL Media that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery. He also gets “a lot of exercise” while he works in the pool and does a little jogging. With all this progress, Williams hopes he will be ready to hit the field to start training camp.

“That’s what I’m aiming for,” Williams said of possibly being ready for a training camp. “What’s overriding that is making sure I’m 100% before I do anything. That would be my time frame, but I’m just going to make sure everything is 100% before I come back so I can be right.”

According to Williams’ camp, Alliance Sports Management, the recipient is expected to follow the draft.

Had it not been for the ACL, Williams would arguably be the first recipient to be hired on next month’s draft. Currently, he is CBS Sports’ No. 2, which is out wide, only looking up to Ohio State’s Garrett Wilson, and he is the 11th-ranked prospect in the entire 2022 class. In his latest mock draft, CBS Sports has Senior NFL Draft analyst Ryan Wilson Williams disappear from the board at No. 19 overall to the Philadelphia Eagles.

In his 15 games played during the 2021 season, Williams caught 79 passes for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns.
