Mel Kiper Jr. is feeling the heat from Georgia football fans after comments he made during the 1st round of the 2022 NFL Draft on Thursday.

The longtime ESPN draft analyst discussed Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams, who was selected 12th overall in the draft after a trade with the Minnesota Vikings to move up in the order. Williams, of course, tore his ACL during the College Football Playoff National Championship Game against Georgia.

Georgia would go on to win the game 33-18. Williams had recorded 4 catches for 65 yards before his injury, as his college career came to a sudden halt.

Whether the Tide would have won or not with Williams on the field is a major “what-if”, but needless to say, and rather expectedly, Bulldogs fans (and media) didn’t take Kiper’s comments lying down:

Needless to say, Kiper hasn’t gained any friends among the Georgia faithful thus far during ESPN’s draft coverage. With several other Bulldogs players projected to have their names called during the event, we’ll see if his tune changes.
