Mike Tannenbaum says he found the next Tyreek Hill at the SEC Championship Game
Mike Tannenbaum is a former NFL general manager of the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins and, now working as an analyst for ESPN, has a keen eye on this year’s draft class.
Notably, Tannenbaum has identified the next player to be an elite speed threat in the mold of the former Kansas City Chiefs and now Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill. It’s former Alabama speedster Jameson Williams, who has made remarkable strides since tearing an ACL in the national championship game in January, and has seen his stock soar in recent weeks.
Tannenbaum shared his takeaways on “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Tuesday.
“I went to the SEC Championship Game thinking I’d be raving about this great Georgia defense,” Tannenbaum said. “I left talking about, I think I just saw the next Tyreek Hill with Jameson Williams. His speed, his game-changing play speed is unbelievable. Assuming he gets back to 100 percent, he could be Tyreek Hill. I think he could be the best football player out of this draft, and I think he doesn’t get out of the top 10, despite tearing his ACL in the last game.”
“I went to the SEC Championship game expecting to scout the Georgia defense…I walked away thinking I’d just seen the next Tyreek Hill in Jameson Williams.”
