With the 24th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys Select:

Jameson Williams. 24. player. 123. . Wide Receiver. Dallas Cowboys

Currently the Dallas Cowboys have exactly one player on the offensive roster who you’d say has above average speed and that player isn’t even a starter. Tony Pollard, in case anyone was wondering. So Cowboys find a solution by selecting Alabama burner Jameson Williams.

It’s questionable if Williams will be available to start the season. Obviously if he isn’t that would mean he also missed training camp, the pre season and other workouts leading up the 2022 campaign.

That won’t and shouldn’t stop the Cowboys from drafting an electrifying downfield threat.

With no Michael Gallup or Williams to start the season things could be rough in the passing game for Dallas. Once both return to the field next to Cee Dee Lamb, the Cowboys could have the explosive trio they envisioned a season ago.

Jameson Williams transferred from Ohio State where we was found down the depth chart. After transferring to ‘Bama he racked up1,950 total yards and 17 touchdowns in 2021. Including 1,572 receiving and 15 TDs. His other two scores came on a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns against Southern Miss.

Bones Fassel gives his stamp of approval on the pick.

Like many prospects in this unique draft, Williams has a broad draft spectrum because of the torn ACL he suffered in the National Title game against Georgia. He’s a top 20 talent so a top 20 drafting team may take him or he could slide right into the Cowboys range.

In this case, he slips and Dallas is willing to risk 4-5 games in exchange for 4-5 seasons of blistering speed and production.
