Mike Williams was a deep threat at Clemson and he was selected No. 7 by the Los Angeles Chargers in the draft. The wide receiver looks to continue making important catches that come in crucial parts of games in the NFL, a lot like he did for the Tigers.
The 6-1, 221 pound receiver will stretch the field and can also come up with clutch catches in traffic. But a neck injury that cost him almost the entire 2015 season is a concern. As he heads into the NFL and pursues his dreams, look for the playmaker to be a consistent 1,000 yard a season receiver. Williams’ career consisted of some injuries that cost him time, but he totaled 177 receptions for 2,727 yards and 21 touchdown catches. Of those 177 receptions, 98 came during his 2016 campaign.
Williams is a receiver that will excel at the professional level, and he has the hands to turn interceptions into dazzling catches. And he is guaranteed to provide fans plenty of things to cheer for throughout his NFL career.
Philip Rivers has yet another weapon to attack the solid secondaries of the Chiefs, Broncos and Raiders. Williams is a dominant red zone threat that should cut down on turnovers with his excellent hands. Expect him to be another stud wide receiver that keeps defenses on their heels. And expect Williams to also lessen the amount of interceptions that Rivers throws this coming season.
