Jameson Williams on possibly playing with DeVonta Smith: It would be something no one’s seen

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: JAN 10 CFP National Championship

The Eagles have used their past two first-round draft choices on receivers. They made Jalen Reagor the 21st overall selection in 2020 and picked DeVonta Smith 10th overall last year.

The Eagles have two first-round choices tonight and could use one on a receiver again.

Alabama receiver Jameson Williams is among the favorites to end the night with the Eagles. He was a top-30 visit to the team’s NovaCare Complex.

“I’ve been hearing that a lot,” Smith told John Clark of NBCSportsPhiladelphia. “I’ve been keeping in contact with the Eagles. It was good.

“They told me they’d love to see me alongside DeVonta. I think that would be a great explosive offense, just something that no one’s seen before. We complement each other very well so I think that would be good.”

Smith set the franchise rookie record with 916 receiving yards on 64 catches with five touchdowns. He, too, played at Alabama, but Smith and Williams were never teammates.

Williams transferred to Alabama last year after two years at Ohio State. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts played with Smith at Alabama before Hurts transferred to Oklahoma.

“It would be wild playing with some people that came from the same college as me in the NFL,” Williams said. “That would be dope.”

  1. The Eagles’ Howie hitting on two drafted WRs in a row certainly would be something nobody’s ever seen before.

  2. He must of meant having two 170 pound wide outs racing downfield for nothing while their QB sneaks it for 3 yards because he can’t read defenses? I’m sure we’ve seen that before, just not for as long as the Eagles seem to be comfortable tolerating it from Jalen Hurts

    Umm, you shouldn’t be missing in the top 10 of a draft. It’s embarrassing if you do.

  4. I think we’ll definitely see something “dope”. For the Eagles’ sake, let’s just hope it’s not “dope”-y…

  5. Smith proved last year his weight wasn’t a big issue. He was great and fearless BUT Williams size I think will be a factor. I’d prefer Burks but if they can land Williams and get a bigger WR and rotate Sith and Williams in the slot they’d have something..and of course draft a QB next year. Hurts is a very good RB.

  6. Hopefully we’ll have a chance to see that dynamic duo. I hoped for Smith last year, I’m doing the same for Williams tonight!

  7. Did they hire Matt Millen and I missed it? It’s happened before – unfortunately.

    2004 (7) Roy WIlliams WR
    2005 (10) Mike WIlliams WR

    2008 Lions first to ever go 0-16,

  8. What good is having great talent at wide-receiver if you don’t have a QB that can get the ball to them… just saying 😌
