Alabama product Jameson Williams has expressed desire to play with Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Williams, who was named to the First-team All-American this past college season, was expected to be a lock in the top-10 but then he sustained a torn ACL in the national championship game.
Still, Williams is one of the most talented wide receivers from this year's class and he is expected to make impact wherever he lands. The Chiefs have two first round picks in the draft (No. 29 and No. 30). "The main reason (in playing for the Chiefs) is I would be close to home," Williams said, via KSHB 41 in Kansas City.
"(Pat's) a great quarterback and I love his game. He can help me and I can help him. We probably could be the greatest duo ever."
The Chiefs could draft Williams, give Mahomes a new asset
This offseason, the Chiefs lost All-Pro wideout Tyreek Hill.
Hill was seeking more money than the Chiefs were willing to offer and Hill ended up with Miami Dolphins on a four-year, $120 million deal. "Tyreek, he's such a tremendous player, he got what he deserved. I'm happy for him.
And he's at a place where he has a home and he's closer to family and stuff. So I'm very happy for him. We had to move forward." The Chiefs received five draft picks in return for Hill. Mahomes was disappointed because they lost Hill but he drew positives and acknowledged the picks they received in return.
"We had to move on and try to get as much as we could for him and try to build that receiving room again," Mahomes said. "And do it to where we have the ability to go out there and compete every single week, which I trust [Chiefs general manager] Brett Veach and Coach [Andy] Reid will do." If the Chiefs feel Williams could be a good addition, they might decide to move up to draft him.
