The NFL draft is now just a few days away and mock drafts and projections are still constantly being shared. Alabama players are regulars to the first round, but others are likely to be selected on the second day or even in some of the last few rounds.

Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams will almost certainly be selected in the first round; but what about John Metchie III, who played alongside Williams?

Metchie is projected to land somewhere in the second or third round, but Pro Football Focus believes he’s one of the more underrated prospects in the 2022 class.

“Metchie tore his ACL in the SEC Championship game but is still expected to be taken in the second round, per a source. He’s 5-foot-11 and 189 pounds and earned a 78.2 overall PFF grade in 2021. He split his time between the slot and outside and earned his highest grades in the short (94.2) and intermediate (92.7) parts of the field.”

His torn ACL may have hurt his original draft stock, but he has plenty of film and stats from his time at Alabama to show what he is capable of.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow John Metchie and other former Alabama players entering the 2022 NFL draft.
