There's no shortage of young talent in the 2022 NBA Draft, and that includes Arkansas Razorbacks prospect Jaylin Williams.

Williams figures to hear his name called on draft night, but the real question is whether he makes his way into the first round or not.

Here's everything you need to know about Williams ahead of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Jaylin Williams NBA Draft Stock & Projection

Round 1
- Miami Heat (No. 27) - 1

Round 2
- San Antonio Spurs (No. 38) - 1
- Charlotte Hornets (No. 45) - 1

CBS Sports is the only mock draft out of the three highlighted to project Williams as a first-round pick. Miami is a logical landing spot for the Arkansas standout considering its lack of depth in the front court behind Bam Adebayo. Williams is a do-it-all big that brings energy every time he is on the court. That's the kind of player head coach Erik Spoelstra loves to coach.

Williams' improvement from his freshman season to his sophomore season put him on the map in terms of the NBA Draft. His play time nearly doubled and he took advantage by posting 16 double-doubles as Arkansas' premiere rebounder. The 19-year-old also became widely known for taking charges, which goes to show he'll do whatever it takes to win the game.
