Unlike every other article I write, I am not going to ramble incessantly in this one.
Here are some fan reactions regarding the Los Angeles Chargers’ newest addition in wide receiver Mike Williams.
Teofilo Nikolao Tuiteleleapaga III Initially, it caught me off guard. Reason being i felt we really needed pass rush help to compliment the emergence of Bosa. But, after letting it sink in..i understand the pick. And with more time passed, i actually like it. Could be a true #1 reciever that we’ve lacked in recent years. Big body and leaping ability makes up for his Speed imo. Hes not FAST, but fast enough. Immediate Red Zone threat. Complimented with the presence of Henry, Tyrell and company..he will be an immediate impact player
Gilbert Garcia I like Mike Williams! I think he has a great ability for separation and ability to go up and get balls.
Nick Millican Top 10 talent that fits a need
Terry Coe Jr I don’t understand LAC and their willingness to let Rivers get beat up. I have seen the slide Okung brought to Denver and I had hoped they would bring in some talent for competition. (Love this, btw)
Didier Dubrit I was a little bit afraid of Hooker because of injuries (as any Chargers fan know, if we can avoid injury prone players with all the injuries we already get, that’s a plus).
I was hoping either for DT/DE to complement Bosa and give us a crazy pass rush/run defense, or Williams, who gives a different kind of asset to the receiving corps that Chargers were missing since VJax left.
It would also have been nice if Adams had fallen to us, but that was unlikely.
Overall, I’m happy with the selection. This draft has more impactful defensive players, so I think it’s a good idea to go get the best offensive players when they are still there.
One fan agreed with the other so much, that he replied in this manner:
Brian Kates Dave, take everything Dubrit just said as my words as well……damn near word for word my thoughts. I am happy with Williams considering this draft.
Thomas Powell Defense wins championships. The chargers have holes on dline and in the secondary. By picking a WR they lost the cream of the crop players that are game changers. Another doofus move by the organization and of course applauded by their fanbase.
Daniel Locke NFL teams continue to draft players named Mike Williams without learning their lesson…those who are ignorant of the past are doomed to repeat it.
James Ebo When it comes to the NFL Draft the theory is that it’s supply and demand. The supply of defensive players meets the demand for the Chargers defensive needs. Because of that theory, they can afford to find additions to the defensive side of the ball and with the way the first round played out, there is valuable defensive talent in the early part of the second round. With that being said the selection of Mike Williams signals the future at Wide Receiver for the Chargers. Williams is a power receiver. He’s a red zone, outside the numbers, back shoulder fade, aggressive receiver that the Chargers have lacked since the days of Jackson and Floyd. He creates separation with power, he’s open when he’s not open and attacks the ball in the air better than any receiver in the draft and for that matter on the Chargers WR corps. This selection says that Anthony Lynn wants to implement a physical, power running game offense that’s dominant in the red zone. Grade A-
Eugenio Rodriguez Another big target one more year for Rivers….(V. Jackson, M.Floyd….) Amazing player, he can really catch the football to high level.
Ryan Brosnan VINCENT JACKSON AND RIVERS WILL MEET AGAIN… THATS HOW THIS PICK IS TO ME
Jeff Martin Big physical receiver that will fill the void that was left when Malcom Floyd retired
And then my brother, Will, drops the knowledge we all needed to read.
Will McCafferty I’m fine with the pick. Rivers has been making chicken salad out of chicken shit for years now. Allen is good, but rarely there, due to injury. Maybe putting a second receiver on the field that the defense must account for will take pressure, and some hits, off of Allen.
Personally, I would have gone defense but I like to think that an NFL GM and his teams talent evaluators know more than I do.
People are just having knee-jerk reactions after just one round. They don’t remember a year ago when they were angry with the Bosa pick.
I LOVE THE FANS!!!
P.S. The dudes in the pic are my dudes. Y’all look great.
