Los Angeles Chargers add another offensive weapon, draft Clemson WR Mike Williams

"That's why I don't think - I would've handled it OK - but it wouldn't have been great", he said.

Williams returned to the Tigers for his senior season to help Clemson capture their first national championship since 1981.

Former Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams was selected #7 overall in the first round of the 2017 National Football League draft by the Los Angeles Chargers.

Telesco also said the Chargers had discussions about trading down, but chose to stay put and take Williams at No. 7. While Keenan Allen is a fantastic receiver, he has made 9 starts over the past 2 seasons so drafting a security blanket only made sense for LA to do.




He draws comparisons to Alshon Jeffery and Plaxico Burress, receivers who don't consistently create separation but can win downfield with 50/50 jump balls or over-the-shoulder catches. "As I've told you guys, and as I truly believe, I think we're nearly in a window as we were in '06, '09, and that part is pretty exciting".

Williams might be the most polished receiver in the class. Corey Davis gives him a fight for that title, but Davis hasn't gone up against the competition faced in the ACC.

Now that the first round has concluded, the Chargers are looking at the chance to get some big names in the second and third round.

"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 Los Angeles Chargers knew they needed to get Philip Rivers more help and that is exactly what they did by adding Williams. Another young player, Dontrelle Inman, had a solid year as well.
