Mike Williams Scouting Report


Prospect Information


Combine Stats


Overview
Williams started to develop his sophomore season posting 1,030 yards on 57 receptions with 6 touchdowns. His stock was rising fast until the first game of the 2015 season when he fractured his neck by hitting the goal post on a touchdown. Came back in 2016 with a strong season posting 1,361 yards on 98 receptions and 11 touchdowns. Would have likely entered the 2016 NFL draft had it not been for the season ending injury.

NFL Comparison
A.J. Green

Strengths
Prototypical size and speed. His long arms and big hands creates a large catch radius. Wins the 50/50 balls with physicality. Played at a high level against some of the best college defenses. Good run blocker.

Weaknesses
Although a good overall drop rate (5.77%), he does drop the easy to catch balls at times. Might need to work on mental focus and improving hand fundamentals. Needs to work on route running. While he is physical winning the 50/50 ball, he could be more aggressive after the catch.

Summary
Clemson has produced strong NFL receivers of late, and if the medical checks out then Williams should follow DeAndre Hopkins and Sammy Watkins as first round picks. He does his best work over the middle of the field. Mike Williams will probably be a top 20 pick.
