Chargers add Williams | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Chargers selected Clemson WR Mike Williams with the 7th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. He joins a loaded offense that also includes Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates. A scary neck injury cost Williams almost the entire 2015 campaign. But he turned in a strong 57-1,030-6 line as a sophomore and then exploded for 98 catches, 1,361 yards and 11 TDs this past year. Williams is a mediocre athlete who doesn’t create much separation at the top of his routes, but strong body control and hands make him dominant in contested situations. The question is whether those skills will translate to the next level against stronger DBs. Los Angeles isn’t an ideal landing spot, with loads of target competition in the short term and a QB question long term (Philip Rivers is 35).

Recent Shark Bites

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) and Travis Benjamin (hip) are both active for today’s game against the Broncos. Williams is an upside WR3 play with CB Chris Harris likely to shadow WR Keenan Allen.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to play today against the Broncos. Williams returned to a full practice Friday after limited workouts the previous 2 days, which certainly seemed to put him on the right track. There will be just 3 more games after his 4:05 ET kickoff in case you need a fill-in, though.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) and Travis Benjamin (hip) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Broncos. They both put in full practices on Friday, so we’re expecting them to play. Williams has intriguing upside with CB Chris Harris likely to shadow WR Keenan Allen on Sunday.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was sidelined all last week before missing the game against Miami. It looks like Williams has a shot to return for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. WR Travis Benjamin (hip) was also limited Wednesday. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. We haven’t heard any details on the back injury or how much longer Williams will be sidelined. WR Travis Benjamin (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 4, so it looks like Dontrelle Inman will operate as Los Angeles’ #2 WR on Sunday. The juicy matchup makes him a WR4 or flex consideration.
