The speedy wide receiver is still considered a potential first-round pick ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft, but teams are monitoring his rehab closely.
As Alabama players go through their Pro Day on Wednesday, Williams is participating in interviews, but not working out. ESPN’s Adam Schefter shared a video of Williams doing some light workouts last week, though:

But here here he is last week, continuing to progress, with the expectation being that he’ll be running by the draft, per @Alliance_Sports. pic.twitter.com/Z4cP9J1mbR

During an appearance on the SEC Network on Wednesday, Williams said everything is going smoothly (via On3 Sports):
“Everything’s going real well right now, I’m about 10 weeks out of surgery,” said Williams. “I got a little five to seven month span on when the recovery is going to go. But everything is going real good, I’m getting real good motion, just real good workouts and just getting back on my feet. That’s the main part, just getting back on my feet and getting back ready to play football. It’s exciting going through the process.”
All it takes is one team to give Williams a shot in Round 1. We’ll see if he hears his name called in the first 32 picks at the end of next month in Las Vegas when the NFL Draft kicks off.
