As you all know by now, the Los Angeles Chargers used their first-round pick on Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams.
Reactions from both the media and fans have been all over the board.
When it comes to NFL news, I prefer to stick to the network that specializes in covering America’s favorite sport: NFL Network.
Other than Steve Mariucci, Mike Mayock is my favorite cat on NFL Network, with Daniel Jeremiah and Adam Rank fitting in there somewhere, too.
Mayock dropped an article on NFL.com, highlighting his thoughts on each draft choice in the first round, including his take on the newest wide receiver to don lightning bolts.
7. Mike Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers
Analysis: “Mike Williams is all about separating with length, power and catch radius. He’s a dominating, physical presence. He’s a back-shoulder guy. You’ll love him in the red zone.”
Though his time as an NFL player may be forgotten by most, Mayock knows his shit. He is NOT some Mel-Kiper-Todd-McShay toolbox, looking to make a living off of having very little knowledge of the NFL game. (Don’t @ me)
Initially — yeah, it just happened and I am already adjusting — I was infuriated by the selection, adding a wideout with the squad’s first choice was a bit puzzling.
But, in reality, what do I know?
The Chargers currently have these wideouts on their roster: Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman, MIKE WILLIAMS, Da’Ron Brown, Isaiah Burse, Geremy Davis, Javontee Herndon and Jamaal Jones.
