The University of Clemson has been a wide receiver factory of some sorts. Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins, and Martavis Bryant have been recent examples of this. It appears the NFL will have to get ready for another superstar Clemson wide out as Mike Williams is set to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. An Anonymous scout recently compared Williams to the likes of Demaryius Thomas and Alshon Jeffrey.
“He’s a big, physical guy, but how fast is he? I think he’s in the 4.5 range, which would be plenty fast enough,” the director told MMQB. “And he had some drops this year, easy drops, but also made some incredible catches. And he was coming off the (neck) injury when the drops were a problem. He’ll go in the first round and make some offense better.”
Williams will probably be the first receiver drafted during the 2017 NFL Draft. Thus far he has caught 84 passes for 1,171 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. You can get a great look at the talented wide receiver during Fiesta Bowl on Saturday against Ohio State.
