Los Angeles Chargers Select WR Mike Williams At No. 7

Los Angeles Chargers Select WR Mike Williams At No. 7

Pete Prisco was less impressed with Los Angeles selection of Williams, giving the Chargers a "C-" and saying "I know they need receivers, but I don't think this kid separates well enough".

"I'm looking forward to living in LA", Williams said in a phone interview from his family home in SC.

After a scary neck fracture in 2015, Williams bounced back to post the best season of his Clemson career in 2016.

At 6-foot-4 and 218 pounds, Williams is a big-bodied receiver who also has the speed to get deep. Williams, an All-ACC pick past year, caught 11 touchdown passes and had 1,361 receiving yards for the national champion Tigers. With Antonio Gates near the end of the line, Williams particularly makes sense as a plug-in red-zone target for the snaps Gates can no longer provide. "He'll have to be coached up with his routes and releases, but he has the talent to become a big safety blanket for a young quarterback".

"Mike is you know our relationship is very very tough, it's very strong and we're very close especially this past year", Watson said at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The concerns: Williams has struggled at times with drops, and doesn't always create immediate separation. "Connecting with each other, always hanging out, even hanging out here at the process. It's going to be really exciting to learn and play with him". He answered some of those doubters by running the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds at Clemson's pro day. Williams took plenty away from their time together.

If Williams doesn't turn into a perennial 1,000-yard receiver, it would be a great disappointment. "We just want him to come in, compete and have a role in this offense and help us win football games". "I look forward to getting with him and having fun".
