The 2022 NFL Draft class is budding with talent, including Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver Jameson Williams.

The 6-foot-2, 189-pound wideout was a standout in his only season with Alabama. He finished the fall campaign with 79 receptions, turning them into 1,572 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns. His efforts alone have him as one of the top wideouts in the class.

Here's a look at the three most likely NFL teams to draft Williams in April.

Jameson Williams NFL Draft

1. Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles needs a serious upgrade to their passing game after averaging 202.7 passing yards per game (No. 21). Fortunately, they have THREE first-round picks to work with to help them. Williams should be on their target list because he has all the makings to form a dynamic wide receiver duo with DeVonta Smith. He's a great route-runner with impressive speed that can catch anything thrown his way. Some scouts are comparing him to Will Fuller, who's a legitimate No. 1 wideout when healthy. If that's the kind of player that the Eagles think Williams can be, they have three opportunities to land him on their roster.

2. New Orleans Saints

With Michael Thomas missing the entirety of the 2021 NFL season, the New Orleans Saints were left without a legitimate pass-catching threat. Sure, some wide receivers stepped up every now and then, but none looked like a clear-cut No. 1 option. Even if Thomas is 100% healthy come September, the Saints could use someone of Williams' caliber to start opposite to him. The 20-year-old wideout could excel with Thomas taking away most of the opposition's attention. Besides, the Saints are a highly-respected organization and playing for them could be the perfect way for Williams to start his career.

3. Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers has made it clear over recent years that he wants the Green Bay Packers to give him more weapons. With his and Davante Adams' future up in the air, Packers management would be wise to appease the four-time NFL MVP. There are few places better for a rookie wideout to play and Williams could thrive catching passes from Rodgers, who had over 4,100 passing yards and 37 TDs last season. Even if drafting Williams convinces Rodgers to stick around for a couple more years, it'll be worth it. Plus, Packers fans will have another talented pass-catcher to watch for years to come after the veteran gunslinger is gone.
