Biography

The Chargers drafted one of the most prolific receivers in national champion MIke Williams from Clemson with the seventh overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Named second-team All-American by Phil Steele, SB Nation and Walter Camp. Was a first-team All-ACC (media, coaches) selection.

Bounced back in a big way from a season-ending injury in the 2015 opener, finishing his career as one of Clemson’s most decorated wide receivers in history. Turned professional with one year of eligibility remaining. In three seasons, compiled 177 receptions for 2,727 yards and 21 touchdowns in 1,871 snaps over 42 games (30 starts). Ranked third in Clemson history in receiving touchdowns, fourth in receiving yards and fifth in receptions.

Helped lead Clemson to a national championship victory over Alabama. Caught eight passes for 94 yards with a touchdown against the Crimson Tide. Opened the playoff run with six grabs for 96 yards in Fiesta Bowl win over Ohio State.

Williams tallied two 1,000-yard receiving seasons, with his best year coming in 2016. Williams was the team leader in receptions (98), receiving yards (1,361) and receiving touchdowns (11). The year culminated with the second-most receptions and third-most receiving yards in a season in Clemson history.

Williams recorded five 100-yard efforts, including one 200-yard receiving game and three over 140 yards. Showed he was back to full strength in return to action at Auburn, where he netted 174 yards on nine catches in the 2016 season opener. The 6-4 receiver posted career-high 12 catches for 146 yards with a touchdown, in overtime triumph against NC State. His top career game came with 15 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown in a one-point loss to Pittsburgh. The 15 grabs were second-most in a game by a Tiger, following only the 16 by Sammy Watkins in the 2014 Orange Bowl against Ohio State. The 202 yards tied Watkins for second-most in a game.

His sophomore season was the first 1,000-yard year for the Vance, S.C., native. Williams had 57 receptions for a team-high 1,030 yards and six touchdowns in 749 snaps over 13 games (11 starts) in 2014. For his efforts, he was a Biletnikoff Award Watch List member, a Second-Team All-ACC selection (media), Third-Team All-ACC selection (coaches), third-team All-ACC by College Sports Madness and Phil Steele.

Suffered fracture in his neck after colliding with the goal post padding on Clemson’s first drive of the 2015 season, a four-yard touchdown catch.

A native of Vance, S.C., Williams was rated as the No. 180 player in the nation and No. 2 player in South Carolina by 247Sports.com at Lake Marion High School. Also played quarterback in limited action as a junior; passed for 354 yards and three touchdowns on just 20 completions. Earned undergraduate degree in sociology in December 2016.
