Now that the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft has been completed, folks everywhere are dishing out hot takes on how they feel about each and every pick — myself included.
In an article on Chargers.com, wide receiver Keenan Allen shared his thoughts on what he’ll tell rookie wideout and first-round draft choice Mike Williams.
Just be you. Come in and play with confidence. Don’t hold anything back and just do what you’ve been doing. Everyone knows what you can do. Just be confident.
Additionally, Allen spoke about adding a weapon like Williams to the mix.
It’s crazy. You add him to me, Tyrell (Williams), Dontrelle (Inman), Travis (Benjamin) plus Antonio (Gates), (Hunter) Henry, Melvin (Gordon); I mean, it’s crazy to defend that. It’s going to open things up for us. We have a lot of threats and different kinds (of receivers). Deep threats. Big guys. Guys who can run everything on the route tree. He is really going to open things up. Anything we can do to make the plays to win the game I’m all for. He’s going to help us.
While I love the sentiment provided by the former Cal Bear, I think it would be fitting if he told Williams, ‘just be healthy and let your play do the talking.’
P.S. Hi, Kyah, Kayden, Carter and Harrison!
